Tayla Lynn bears a special tattoo on her arm that reads “to sing is to breathe.” As the granddaughter of country legend Loretta Lynn, it’s a symbolic phrase she lives by, honoring her grandmother’s voice while sharing her own. Like her grandmother, Lynn’s passion for music and humble spirit shine through in our conversation that explores her youthful days living and touring with the country icon, as well as the 44-year-old’s musical journey from being a part of former trio Stealing Angels with Jennifer Wayne and Caroline Cutbirth Hobby to recording her own rendition’s of Lynn’s famous songs on Tayla Lynn Sings Loretta Lynn. In this edition of Female Friday, Lynn reflects on Loretta’s impact, her experience with addiction and the power of showing up.

Tayla Lynn has a new album titled ‘Tayla Lynn Sings Loretta Lynn,’ which pays tribute to the country music icon.

Tayla Lynn is grateful that her memaw was by her side during the darkest of times.

In 1997, Loretta Lynn got her granddaughter into rehab, but it wouldn’t be the last time that the singer was faced with addiction. It was 2004 when Lynn finally got sober for the first time.

Temptation came knocking after Lynn got married and became a mother.

“You’re sitting there in the middle of this fancy neighborhood in Seattle, not being faithful in your marriage and breastfeeding your baby while you’re doing drugs, and all of a sudden you wake up and say to yourself, ‘What in the hell am I doing?!” Lynn told People magazine on Friday.

 NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of the Queen of Country, Loretta Lynn, is officially releasing her first solo project Tayla Lynn Sings Loretta Lynn after a soft release last month via her website www.taylalynn.com

A tribute to her illustrious grandmother, Tayla Lynn Sings Loretta Lynn features Tayla Lynn singing 13 of her favorite Loretta Lynn hits, including “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Fist City”  and “The Pill,” as well as duets on “Sweet Thing” with special guest Tony Booth (singing the part made famous by Ernest Tubb) and the song that defined her grandmother’s career, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” with her Aunt Patsy Lynn Russell. Loretta Lynn is listed as a co-writer on the project and a 14th track will thrill fans with her recorded greeting. 

“I love working and writing with Memaw [as she affectionately calls her grandmother],” Tayla Lynn gushes. “Early in my career, she took me out on the road for a year and taught me how to walk the stage, sing a sad song, be funny and treat the audience like you are in their living room.”

Tayla Lynn’s first major musical project was as a member of the trio Stealing Angels (with Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Wayne). The group was signed to Skyville Records in 2007; over a five-year period, they toured the country, sang for the troops in Iraq and Kuwait and made a record with veteran producer Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, Sara Evans). Their songs “He Better Be Dead” and “Paper Heart” both made the Billboard country chart.

But her life up to this momentous point in her career has been anything but easy. In a just-released exclusive People.com article, Tayla recounts her decades-long intermittent battle with addiction. “There was a time when I didn’t want to wake up and see tomorrow,” Lynn admits. During those years, she told People, she was often living with her grandmother. “The way she handled it was, I wasn’t allowed to go on the road. … Going on the road with her was like heaven to me … but she wouldn’t allow it if I got myself in trouble.” Shortly after marrying and becoming a mother, the article explains, Tayla’s demons began roaring back. “You’re sitting there in the middle of this fancy neighborhood in Seattle, not being faithful in your marriage and breastfeeding your baby while you’re doing drugs and all of a sudden you wake up and say to yourself, ‘What in the hell am I doing?!’”
