Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn are two of the biggest names in country music. The two women ended up meeting in the 1950s when Lynn was just starting out her music career in Nashville and went on to become best friends.
“After I met Patsy, life got better for me because I fought back,” Lynn explained to the Nashville Scene. “Before that, I just took it. I had to. I was 3,000 miles away from my mom and dad and had four little kids. There was nothin’ I could do about it. But later on I starting speakin’ my mind when things weren’t right.”
