The award and the film were nominated for best picture Lynn won.
Long after her commercial peak, Lynn won two Grammys in 2005 for her album.
“Van Lear Rose,” a collaboration with rock star Jack White featured 13 songs she wrote, including “Portland, Oregon,” about a drunken one-night stand.
She is the single most crucial female singer-songwriter of the 20th century; White told The Tennessean at the time.
Born Loretta Webb, the second of eight children, she claimed her birthplace was Butcher Holler, near the coal mining company town of Van Lear in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.
She made up the name for the song based on the names of the families that lived there.
Before Lynn’s ascendance into country music royalty, it wasn’t even on most maps. It was a place of hardship, poverty, and danger for Lynn.
Her father, Ted, worked the night shift at the Consolidated Number Five mine, while her mother, Clara, tended to the eight kids and read books by a kerosene lamp until he came home.
In her first autobiography, Lynn viewed her father’s work as heroic.
She wrote that he kept his family alive by breaking down his body.
When Lynn was 13, she met Oliver “Doolittle” Lynn at a pie supper.
He was 21, had served in the Army, and already had a reputation for wildness.
