Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member Loretta Lynn has passed away at age 90. She died peacefully in her sleep early in the morning Tuesday, October 4, at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
On Oct. 2, Lynn would publish what would prove to be her last Facebook message. For her final message, Lynn quoted from Scripture.
"Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed," the "Coal Miner's Daughter" singer writes. "But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God."
More than 6,000 fans liked the post, and 1,500 shared it. "How could we have known that this would be her last post?" writes a user named Susan Frost. "How appropriate that it is a Bible verse! Thank you, Loretta for a life well lived!"
Throughout her 60-year career, Lynn achieved the highest level of success with over 50 Top 10 Hits including "Fist City," "You Ain't Woman Enough," "You're Lookin' At Country," "Don't Come Home A Drinking," "Coal Miner's Daughter," and more. Lynn also recorded legendary duets with The Wilburne Brothers, Ernest Tubb, and Conway Twitty.
The famous native of Butcher Hollow, Ky. amassed a staggering 51 Top 10 hits, garnered every accolade available in music from GRAMMY awards to induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and broke down barriers for women everywhere with songs like "Don't Come Home a Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)," "Fist City" and "Coal Miner's Daughter."
