Bravo and Andy Cohen have both issued statements following the death of a country music star.

On October 4, 2022, Loretta Lynn died, according to CNN. The 90-year-old country music star was best known for her song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” which was eventually the name of the movie made about her life starring Sissy Spacek in 1990. 

“Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills,” a statement from her family to CNN reads.

The song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” spoke of her early life in Butcher Hollow in the Appalachian mining town of Van Lear, Kentucky where she grew up one of eight children in the 1930s. 

“We were poor but we had love; That’s the one thing that daddy made sure of,” the lyrics of the song read.

Lynn was famously mentored by another country music legend, Patsy Cline who Lynn spoke of in a 2009 interview with The Denver Post, “… you don’t expect somebody like Patsy Cline to tell you that you have a hit. Right after she passed, I put the record out, and it was a hit.”

The Washington Post described Lynn’s career as, “remarkable for its storybook ascent from hardscrabble origins. She was a teenage bride and mother, a country star and a grandmother by her early 30s. A trailblazer for other female country performers, she was the first woman to win the Country Music Association’s entertainer of the year award, in 1972. She also helped redefine and broaden the appeal of country music.”

Lynn was a guest on Cohen’s late-night talk show where she “spilled the tea” on other music icons like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Dolly Parton.

“I love Dolly,” she said during her 2016 appearance. “You know me and Tammy and Dolly did an album together.” She also referred to Parton as “one of the greatest” songwriters of our time.

Of Presley, she said, “You know, we were gonna write together. Two weeks before he died. We talked about it. We were gonna get together and write. We never got to.”

Cohen then asked about another music legend, Sinatra.

“I love Frank,” Lynn said with a huge smile.

“Frank was a great person. I said ‘Frank, we gotta get this show on the road,'” she said of their collaboration. “He said, ‘why honey?’ I said, ‘Dean Martin’s getting drunk.'” She laughed and said Sinatra assured her not to worry and that Martin would “save the show” and he “saved it three times that night.”
