“So sorry to hear about my sister, friend Loretta,” tweeted Dolly Parton, who sang with Lynn and Tammy Wynette on the 1993 album Honky Tonk Angels. “We’ve been like sisters all the years we’ve been in Nashville and she was a wonderful human being, wonderful talent, had millions of fans and I’m one of them.”

“I wouldn’t even be making country music today if it weren’t for Loretta Lynn,” Margo Price wrote on Instagram. “She showed me what it looked like to be a musician and a mama. Her writing was as real as the day is long and she didn’t take no shit. This one hurts on another level… I’ll miss her forever.”
