The saying, "Mighty oaks from little acorns grow" summarizes nicely Loretta Lynn's superstar Country career, which started in 1960 when she wrote and recorded "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" as her debut single. The song was a hit, climbing to #14 on Billboard's C&W Chart.

Coal Miner's Daughter, written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn. It was originally released as a single in 1970 and became a number one hit on the Billboard country chart. It was later released on an album of the same name. Produced by Owen Bradley, the song tells the story of Lynn's coal-mining father in rural Kentucky during the Great Depression. Lynn, who was born in 1932 and experienced the Great Depression as a child, also describes her childhood and the circumstances she was raised in during those years.

On October 15th 1960, Loretta Lynn made her first appearance on the 'Grand Ole Opry'... She so impressed the 'Opry' staff that she was invited back for 21 consecutive week-ends.

"Coal Miner's Daughter" would receive positive reviews from journalists and music critics alike following its release. It would become one of Lynn's signature recordings in her career. It would also be considered one of music's most significant recordings, according to polls from Time and the Recording Industry Association of America.

Coal Miner's Daughter was listed at No. 185 on RIAA's list of Songs of the Century and was also listed in 2003's TV special at No. 13 on CMT's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.

In 2010 the Library of Congress put "Coal Miner's Daughter" on the National Recording Registry.
