Reba McEntire Shares Touching Tribute to Fellow Country Music Queen Loretta Lynn Following Her Passing

Following the passing of country music queen Lorretta Lynn, one of her most well-respected peers shared a touching tribute to her in a tweet.

Reba McEntire shared a Facebook post with a picture of herself with Lynn and said, “Mama and Loretta Lynn were four years apart, Mama being the oldest.”

“They always reminded me a lot of each other. Strong women, who loved their children and were fiercely loyal,” McEntire explained

McEntire continued, “Now they’re both in Heaven getting to visit and talk about how they were raised, how different country music is now from what it was when they were young.”

“Sure makes me feel good that Mama went first so she could welcome Loretta into the hollers of heaven!” McEntire declared.

McEntire concluded, “I always did and I always will love Loretta. She was always so nice to me. I sure appreciate her paving the rough and rocky road for all us girl singers.”

As we previously reported, it was announced today that Lynn passed away at 90 years old.

In her final Facebook post, shared two days ago, Lynn posted a bible verse that read, “Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:20-21”

In a statement, the family asked for privacy and said, “Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home at her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills.”

Kid Rock also posted a heartfelt tribute to Lynn in a tweet where he also shared a picture of the two together and said, “RIP Miss Loretta.”

“I find it very difficult to put your beautiful soul, talent and friendship into words right now… so I will use the ones you said to me and so many others, so many times…’I love you honey,'” Rock added.

Yesterday, we reported that McEntire expanded her fall tour by adding 14 new tour dates for March and April of 2023.
