American Country-Western singer raised appropriately in Texas. Lynn began writing songs as a young teenager and dreamed of being the female Elvis Presley. The left-hander taught herself to play the guitar, and by the time she graduated from Hebert High School in 1960, she had enough songs to release an album. Huey P. Meaux, a music entrepreneur, spotted her in a local club and helped launch her career.
At age 18, she recorded her debut single, "You’ll Lose a Good Thing," a hit which sold a million copies and became her signature song. She performed on American Bandstand and toured the world with such legends as Otis Redding and James Brown. In 1966, she had a minor hit with "You Left the Water Running" and disappeared from public view. She didn’t resurface until 1994 when she was given the Pioneer Award by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, and shortly thereafter, she resumed her recording career with the release of "So Good."
Lynn married at age 28. She had three children, and is the grandmother of five. Her husband died during the mid-1990s, and after his death, she moved back to her hometown to be near her mother.
