Picks and Pans Review: Talking With...Loretta Lynn
In the follow-up Still Woman Enough (written with Patsi Bale Cox), Lynn, 67, says, "I had the courage to write about my fights with Doo," who, she says, was on a hunting trip during the 1972 ceremony when she was named the Country Music Association's first female entertainer of the year. Their battles, she says, convinced her that "women think faster, move faster, are faster. And that's the dang truth." Once when she fought back, she tried to hit Doo's shoulder but missed—and knocked out two of his teeth. Still, Lynn, who lives in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., and has had six children, says, "I forgave him for the cheatin', the drinkin', the fightin', for anything he ever done. It's one of the hardest love stories in the world."
