Loretta Lynn: Coal Miner’s Daughter Got Married At 15

Country fans know the story of Loretta Lynn getting married at 13, but
it turns out she’s three years older than she had led people to believe
and was 15 when she got married. The singer’s birth certificate obtained
by The Associated Press shows Lynn was born on April 14, 1932 — making
her 80 years old. Most references list her age as 77. Lynn’s
spokeswoman isn’t commenting on the report. Nancy Russell says Lynn has
told her before that if anyone asks her age “tell them it’s none of
their business.” In her autobiography, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Lynn
said she was married at 13 and was a mother of four by 18. But her
marriage license shows she was 15. “Coal Miner’s Daughter” was made into
an Academy Award-winning film and is going to become a Broadway
musical.
