Country Music Star: Loretta Lynn’s Butcher Holler Home

Join us through a tour around Loretta Lynn’s birthplace in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky. We talk about her childhood as a coal miner’s daughter, the family’s modest living conditions, and her early marriage. We get to talk to Mac, a cousin of Loretta Lynn, who provides personal anecdotes and insights into the country singer’s early life.

We also talk about the Webb Grocery store which is a tangible piece of Loretta’s history. Alongside the exploration of physical locations, we includes portions of Lynn’s songs which serve as a biographical narrative.

This was so exciting to visit and we’re happy to share it with you!
