As per Celebrity Net Worth, Loretta’s net worth in 2022 was $65 Million. Born Loretta Webb, she had a tough childhood in rural Kentucky. However, she persevered and become one of the renowned country music queens. Apart from being a colorful personality, she was also a talented musician who took home multiple Country Music Awards and Grammy Awards in her career.
Lynn is known for her most famous song, Coal Miner’s Daughter which is a sweet autobiographical song from the 1970s detailing her childhood. She was one of the eight children growing up in Kentucky’s rural coal country. Her first performance was in the 1950s.
However, it took her thirteen more years to release her first album in 1963. The artist continued recording several albums through 2021. After decades of hard work, she amassed her existing net worth which is surely something big for someone whose dad shoveled coal to get food for the family.

She and Jack White won a Grammy for the best country collaboration with vocals. She also won one for the best country album, Van Lear Rose.
