Tracey K. Houston
Tracey K. Houston, an internationally acclaimed, award-winning, traditional country music artist, presents in song and story, "Hey Loretta, The Girl From Butcher Holler", a loving portrayal of the Queen of Country Music, Ms. Loretta Lynn.
Loretta Webb was born in 1932, the second of eight kids to a coal miner (hence the nickname, "The Coal Miner’s Daughter"), in the mountains of Butcher Holler, Kentucky, and married at the age of 15 to Oliver Vanetta "Mooney" Lynn. She had her fourth child by the time she was 20 and became a grandmother at 32. She embarked upon her professional music career in 1959, and in 1960 released one single, ‘Honky Tonk Girl’, on Zero Records. A year later, due to the success of that hit single, Decca Records picked up her recording contract. Through personal and professional triumphs and tragedies during the past five decades, Loretta has captured the hearts of millions worldwide, and has become one of the most recognized and successful country music artists ever.
