In “Hey Loretta,” a wry 1973 hit about walking out on rural drudgery written by the comic artist Shel Silverstein, she sang, “You can feed the chickens and you can milk the cow/This woman’s liberation, honey, is gon na start right now.” Silverstein also wrote the beleaguered housewife’s lament “One’s on the Way,” a No. 1 nation hit for Ms. Lynn in 1971. ”

Loretta always just said specifically what she was starting through right then in her music, and that’s why it resonates with us,” the country singer Miranda Lambert, one of countless younger performers influenced by Ms. Lynn, said in a 2016 PBS “American Masters” documentary, “Loretta Lynn: Continue To a Mountain Girl.”
