We wanted to say goodbye to a woman we’ve previously written about in several i-Blog articles, and that is Loretta Lynn.  While it is true Loretta, a #3 FEAL, had a rare and unique Brain Type for the entertainment business, she was equally a uniquely kind and caring woman who became a worldwide sensation with her 1971 track “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Lynn was a disciplined, self-taught singer and song-writer.  She purchased her first guitar at the age of 21, and in three years she was already playing in local taverns (while juggling four young children at home)!  Soon she became popular in the Washington state country music scene, and cut her first record called “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl.”  Her family eventually moved to Nashville, where she had twins for a total of six children!  After “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, Lynn became a national sensation.

Self-made, Lynn always emphasized hard work.  She once said, “The country is making a big mistake not teaching kids to cook and raise a garden and build fires.”  As a dominant Animate, she was often deeply touched by the people she met, though like most #3s she put a bold face on it.  “I try to visit people in hospitals when I can, smiling and joking while I’m there,” she once said.  “But when I leave, I just start crying.”  

Has anyone ever seen Johnny Cash’s (#5 FEIR) wife, June Carter Cash?  She too was a #3 FEAL, and one of the most talkative people you could ever meet!  On stage, Lynn’s personality was much the same (though a little more tame), casually talking to her fans without much premonition.  “Being on stage is the best part of my career,” she again said. I just say whatever comes into my head. It’s the only time I feel grown-up and in control of things.”

Yes, though Loretta was talented, she was no natural, overcoming her #3 Left brain natural tendencies with hard work to succeed in a largely Right brain dominated world (music).  In her own words, “I couldn’t have done it on my own. I thank God every day for what I have.”
