Country Music News


Loretta Lynn has declared country music dead. She made the announcement during a recent interview on Martina McBride‘s podcast called Vocal Point with Martina McBride. According to, Loretta said, “They’ve already let it (die). I think it’s dead. I think it’s a shame. I think it’s a shame to let a type of music die. I don’t care what any kind of music it is. Rock, country, whatever. I think it’s a shame to let it die, and I’m here to start feeding it.”
Martina told Loretta that she seemed “mad” about the situation and Loretta replied, “Yeah. I’m getting mad about it. I am. Because it’s ridiculous. I’m not happy at all. I think that they’re completely losing it. And I think that’s a sad situation because we should never let country music die. I think that every type of music should be saved, and country is one of the greatest. It’s been around, as far as I’m concerned, longer than any of it.”
Loretta, 87, also said she is doing well since suffering a stroke in 2017 and breaking her hip the following year. She said, “I’m doing good, I’m moving my arms, I’m moving all my parts and I can still sing.’”
