Many fans and musicians were saddened after the news of Loretta Lynn’s death spread online. In recognition of his decades of success and contributions to the country music industry, this year’s CMA Awards will pay tribute to the late singer.
The legendary singer, who has died aged 90, broke into the music world in 1971, according to Fox News. Her song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” became one of the most iconic songs of her career.
Her fame skyrocketed from there as she won the CMA Award for Female Vocalist three times in 1967, 1972 and 1973. Other tracks in his catalog include “Somebody Somewhere,” “Once on the Way,” and “Don’t Come Home Drunk.”
In initial reports, his publicist and family confirmed the death in a statement to Rolling Stone, saying he died peacefully in his sleep on the morning of October 4 at his farm in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
Although the cause of his death was not given, many people speculated that the singer died due to health problems he had been suffering from for the past few years.
In 2016, Lynn quit the tour after a fall that prevented her from performing. His doctor wants him to recover from this incident.
The following year, he was hospitalized after suffering a stroke but managed to recover after suffering health problems.
