On April 16th, 1964, The Rolling Stones released their debut
album. As they looked to enter the race against The Beatles,
they appeared on the record sleeve in mop-top hairstyles
and smart suits as directed by Oldham. But what the group
lacked on
The Beatles was original material. The Rolling
Stones
consisted of 12 songs in total, and only three were
original compositions by the band.

Singer Loretta Lynn greatly expanded the opportunities
for women in the male-dominated world of country-
western music, was born in Butcher Hollow,
Kentucky 
on April 14, 1932. She is 89 years young today.

Unlike some country-western stars that sang about a
rural working class life but lived an urban middle class
existence, Loretta Lynn’s country roots were authentic.

Born Loretta Webb in a log cabin in the backwoods hills
of Kentucky, she was the daughter of a coal miner who
worked long hours to keep his family fed and clothed.
