Loretta Lynn Net Worth – Loretta Lynn is an American country music star who has a net worth of $60 million dollars. Born in Kentucky in 1932 as Loretta Webb, Loretta Lynn is one of country music's trailblazers. She was married before her 15th birthday and soon gave birth to her first child. She got her first guitar as a gift from her husband in 1953 and taught herself how to play. A few years later, she started performing at venues around Washington, recording her first album, "Honky Tonk Girl", in 1960. A few years later, Lynn scored her first number-one hit with "You Ain't Woman Enough", becoming the first woman to write a chart-topper in the genre. That success started a string of number-one hits, and Lynn would go on to have 16 top songs throughout her career. Her album "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'" was one of the earliest by a woman country musician to top half-a-million in sales. She was the first female to win Entertainer of the Year from the Country Music Association in 1972. Overall, the sometimes-controversial Lynn has sold more than 45 million records around the world with more than 50 top ten hits. She gained notoriety during the '70s for her musical partnership with Conway Twitty, spawning hits such as "After the Fire Is Gone", "Lead Me On", and "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man". Together, they won Best Vocal Duet four times at the Academy of Country Music Awards. The movie of her life, "Coal Miner's Daughter", debuted in 1980 and rocked the box office around the country. The film received seven Oscar nods and Sissy Spacek took home Best Actress for her portrayal of Lynn. Lynn became the first female country musician to get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2003, she was honored by the President of the United States with a Kennedy Center Honor. Several of her songs were banned during her career for their controversial lyrics, including "Rated X", "Wings Upon Your Horns" and "The Pill". Lynn's husband died in 1996 after 48 years of marriage. They had six children together, and she owns a famous ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
