Married At 13 Was A Bad Idea
This is a great interview with Loretta Lynn as she expresses that maybe getting married at the age of 13 wasn’t the best idea in the world.
In a wide-ranging interview published this week, country legend Loretta Lynn admits that getting married at the age of 13 may not have been the best idea. She also humorously refers to Garth Brooks as a “little booger.”
While speaking to Philly.com in advance of a concert that ended up being postponed due to knee surgery, Lynn looks back with a bit of regret about getting married as a 13-year-old, and being a grandmother at age 29, but does note that she stayed married until her husband passed away in 1996.
She also says that country music has changed quite a bit since her time, but says old-time fans either have to “accept it or forget it.”
