NASHVILLE, TN - SEPTEMBER 17: Loretta Lynn performs onstage at the 13th annual Americana Music Association Honors and Awards Show at the Ryman Auditorium on September 17, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee.

As we learned in the past 24 hours Loretta Lynn was not only an icon of Country Music but was loved and influenced so many of today’s Country Stars.  As the news broke that Loretta Lynn passed away, Today’s Country stars took to social media to pay tribute to Loretta.

So many of today’s female country stars say the reason that they are doing country music is because of the road Loretta paved for artists like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Carly Pearce, and so many others.

She is the most awarded female in country music history. And she was the only female to receive ACM Artist of the Decade.

The Road Loretta Paved.
