On January 10, 1948, 15-year-old Loretta Webb married Oliver Vanetta "Doolittle" Lynn, better known as "Doolittle" better known as just "Doolittle", "Doo", or "Mooney".They had met only a month earlier.The Lynns left Kentucky and moved to the logging community of Custer, Washington, when Loretta was seven months pregnant with the first of their six children. The happiness and heartache of her early years of marriage would help to inspire Lynn's songwriting. In 1953, Doolittle bought her a $17 Harmony guitar. She taught herself to play the instrument, and over the following three years, she worked to improve her guitar playing. With Doolittle's encouragement, she started her own band, Loretta and the Trailblazers, with her brother Jay Lee playing lead guitar. She often appeared at Bill's Tavern in Blaine, Washington and the Delta Grange Hall in Custer, Washington, with the Pen Brothers' band and the Westerneers. She cut her first record,"I'm a Honky Tonk Girl", in February of 1960. 

Lynn was born April 14, 1932 and is a country music singer-songwriter with multiple gold albums in a career spanning almost 60 years. 

Lynn has received numerous awards and other accolades for her groundbreaking role in country music, including awards from both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music both as a single artist and as a duet partner. She is the most awarded female country recording artist and the only female ACM Artist of the Decade (1970s). Lynn has sold more than 45 million albums worldwide, scored 24 No. 1 hit singles, and 11 number one albums. Lynn continues to tour, appear at the Grand Ole Opry and release new albums.
