"So when I sing those country songs about women struggling to keep things going, you could say I've been there," she wrote in her first memoir, "Coal Miner's Daughter." "Like I say, I know what it's like to be pregnant and nervous and poor."

Lynn scored hits with fiery songs like "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)" and "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)," which topped the country charts in 1966 and made her the first female country singer to write a No. 1 hit."
