Remembering Loretta Lynn

The Kentuckian singer and author has died at age 90. She was often described as the first woman in country music, though she disputed the label. "I was just the first one to stand up there and say what I thought, what life was about," she told Esquire in 2002. "The rest were afraid to." She had 24 No. 1 singles and 11 chart-topping albums in her astonishing 60-year career. Here's a look at her life, including tributes from friends including Dolly Parton and The Muppets.
