Gli appassionati di musica piangono la tragica morte di Loretta Lynn, la regina della musica country. Lynn era una sposa e una madre adolescente che divenne un’icona americana. La gente ha riferito che Lynn aveva 16 canzoni n. 1, scritto più libri e ricevuto la Presidential Medal of Freedom nel 2013. L’ex presidente Barack Obama ha detto: “La figlia di questo minatore di carbone ha dato voce a una generazione, cantando ciò di cui nessuno voleva parlare e dicendo quello a cui nessuno voleva pensare … Loretta Lynn regna ancora come la regina della musica country che infrange le regole e stabilisce i record “.
But Lynn's last Instagram post has a whole new meaning after her death.
Loretta Lynn's last Instagram post was a mantra for her life
On October 2, Loretta Lynn posted a bible verse on Instagram and wrote, "Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 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. John 3:20-21." The country star's post was a mantra for her life. Raised in a Kentucky holler with eight siblings, Lynn worked hard and remained humble. In 2016, Lynn told People, "They tell me to rest all the time, but I'm not tired! I don't have to work now. I don't have to, but I love to." The country superstar added, "I can probably outwork anyone in Nashville. I ain't ready to lay down and die."
While promoting a new album in 2021, the 89-year-old singer talked to The Sun about "Coalminer's Daughter." Lynn explained, "I had the best parents in the world, and this song is my tribute to them, to their hard work and the life that made me. You can't ever forget where you come from, and I carry the song in my heart everywhere I go."
Author Robert Oermann told The Washington Post, "Her songs were delivered from a distinctly female point of view ... Writing about women as they really lived — that was a breakthrough."
