The Webb family, a poor coal-mining family in Kentucky, may not have the wealths of the earth, but they were surely gifted with something that money can never buy: TALENT. In fact, out of the eight children of the family, two of them claimed seats as successful and highly-respected singers in the country music genre. And they are Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle – who you’ve probably heard so many times in this lifetime and deservingly so. That is, the sisters have charted countless hit songs and have both been a recipient of awards and honors multiple times.
Loretta Lynn, who was born in 1932, was the first to embark on the career of being a musician. She was definitely a natural, and with her talent, she created a trailblazing pathway that paved the way for other female singers in the genre. One of those was her very own much younger sister Crystal Gayle. And Crystal definitely showed that the Webb family is indeed talented as she rose to the top of the music charts when she released her first album.
The two also collaborated numerous times, but probably the most memorable for fans was their duet with Boston Pops Orchestra.
