    Pre-Lot Text

    Although she is not the first, nor the last, successful woman in the Country Music industry, Loretta Lynn paved a road that is uniquely her own. As the first woman to earn the Country Music Award for Entertainer of the Year in 1972, Loretta Lynn built her career on a foundation with modest roots. These humble beginnings ultimately grew into a wildly successful and ongoing profession full of pure, natural talent, honest charm, and a style that still engages audiences today. Loretta Lynn's influence and enduring abilities are seen and felt throughout the world of contemporary country music, which is perhaps one of the many reasons she was inducted to The Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988.
