Tanya Tucker Named One of Her Horses In Honor of Loretta Lynn

The April 14 tweet isn’t the first time Tanya Tucker has paid tribute to Loretta Lynn.

In 2018, Tucker named one of her horses after the Coal Miner’s Daughter. It was so important for Tucker to pay tribute to her hero that she even took time from Loretta Lynn to get permission to do so. And, Lynn was more than happy to give her permission to Tucker.

“I’ve got a new filly, gonna be a cutting horse – out of a really big stud called Smooth as a Cat. And I named her Miss Loretta Lynn. So, I had to get permission to use her name for the American Quarter Horse Association,” Tucker said during 2018. “They don’t allow you to do that unless you get permission. So, I went out to her house and she signed that paper twice, she loved it! And I sent her pictures of Loretta and I’m going to get a great trainer … and we’ll see, it’s nice if I get to have a horse named Miss Loretta Lynn just make the finals. But hey, let’s go all the way, as long as we’re thinking, let’s go all the way and win the thing!”
