Loretta Lynn touched the lives of everyone she met. She shared close relationships with many of her fellow artists, both young and old.
She shared an especially close connection with Randy Travis.
In 1990, Travis released an album titled Heroes & Friends. The album contained duets with some of Travis’ contemporaries and his personal heroes. One of the “heroes” he included on the album was Lynn.
The two of them recorded a song titled “Shopping for Dresses,” which was written by Merle Haggard and Jimmy Dickens.
Beyond being duet partners, Travis and Lynn were close friends. So when Lynn passed away on Tuesday (October 4), Travis was heartbroken.
