Loretta Lynn won three Grammy Awards and stood out in a genre of music dominated by men, giving her lyrics a different vision.

Some of her big hits at the time were "You Ain't Woman Enough" (1966), "Don't Come Home a Drinkin" (1967), "Fist City" (1968), and "One's On The Way" (1972), among many others, produced by her former personal assistant and designer Tim Cobb.

In 1998, Coal Miner's Daughter became her first recording to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

In addition, Lynn was the first woman to be named Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association in 1972 and then by the Academy of Country Music in 1975.

Lynn left a musical legacy of 50 studio albums and 36 compilation albums over a six-decade career.

Artists such as Billy Ray Cyrus and Dolly Parton paid tribute to the deceased music icon. Parton posted Twitter honoring her "wonderful talent."

"So sorry to hear about my sister, friend Loretta," the singer said. "We've been like sisters all the years we've been in Nashville and she was a wonderful human being."

Carole King, Carrie Underwood and Jack White have also paid tribute to Lynn with words on their social media.
