Loretta Lynn’s reign as the queen of country music began with her first record in 1960 and continued until her death in 2022 at age 90. Along the way, she racked up awards for her lyrics, albums, and performances. Lynn is in eight entertainment-­industry halls of fame, but one of her most recent honors was for a soundtrack of 125-cc two-strokes and the roar of a crowd. In 2021, the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame inducted Lynn in recognition of her role in the sport’s history.

It was just supposed to be another day. A day that we live life, run errands, figure out supper and as always—talk to momma. But she was gone…really gone. It couldn’t be true. We knew soon enough the whirlwind would begin, the world would know and we would be swept up in the swirling sea of it all… but for the moment no one knew. Just us. The world stood still. It couldn’t be real. Yes, she was Loretta Lynn, the legend, the star, the record breaker, the pioneer, the voice, but to us she was momma. It was surreal. We called each other, we rushed to her house, but it was true. In the early hours ..read more

By Margo Price I remember the first time I made the pilgrimage to Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, to pay homage to the “Queen of Country Music,” Loretta Lynn.

We grabbed our guitars and packed lunches consisting of sandwiches, chips, and a pack of cigarettes. As we trucked westbound along I-40 and passed the towns of Pegram, Burns, and Dickson, we spent our time listening to deep cuts on Honky Tonk Girl: The Loretta Lynn Collection. I turned up the volume on ..read more

WHEN PUTTING TOGETHER this ranking of country music’s all-time greats, we looked to movie criticism for inspiration. For decades Citizen Kane topped nearly every list as the greatest film ever made, but with time, some started to realize that, hey, just maybe The Godfather is the better picture. Likewise, we reevaluated exactly where Hank Williams fits into country music, the true influence of Merle Haggard, and if an artist as clearly in the pop realm as Taylor Swift deserves inclusion. But in the end, the common denominator for both legends and today’s stars was that they are all one-of-a-ki ..read more
