One of country's greatest legends – that Loretta Lynn was married at 13 – has been shot down by a new report that the Coal Miner's Daughter, believed to be 77, is really three years older than she claims to be.

As was memorably told in her bestselling 1976 autobiography Coal Miner's Daughter, which then became a 1980 box-office hit that won a Best Actress Oscar for leading lady Sissy Spacek, Lynn wed husband Doolittle "Doo" Lynn at 13, moved with him to Washington State at 16 and was mother to four (of their eventual six kids) by 18.
