Country music legend Loretta Lynn has a net worth that makes most people’s eyes bug out of their heads, and she’s earned every single penny.
Born in 1932 as Loretta Webb, Lynn has taken the country music world by storm ever since she recorded her first album, “Honkey Tonk Girl,” in 1960.
Shortly after she released her first album, Lynn scored a number one hit with her now-infamous song taking a jab at the other woman: “You Ain’t Woman Enough.” At that time, she was the first woman to ever write a number one country music hit. And that jump-started her career in ways no one could have dreamed.
Lynn went on to have 16 famous hit songs throughout the course of her career, including “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin,” as well as a popular series of collaborations with fellow legend Conway Twitty, including “After the Fire Is Gone.”
