Loretta Lynn Lied About Her Age – Does It Matter? [POLL]

Taste Of Country recently reported that Loretta Lynn is under fire for age discrepancy.

According to the state of Kentucky, Loretta Webb was born in Johnson County, Ky. in 1932, making the icon 80-years-old, instead of 77 as previously suspected. Even more suspicious is the year on her marriage license to her late husband,  O.V. “Mooney” Lynn, which shows the two tied the knot on Jan. 10, 1948. This proves that the singer was married just shy of her 16th birthday, not at 13 as told in ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter.’

Many fans have mixed feelings about this situation. While some feel it doesn’t matter how old she is, others feel that they’ve been lied to for many years. With her story becoming public in a book and movie, portrayed by Sissy Spacek, does it matter to you?
