Skip to comments.BOOM: Country Music Icon Makes Huge Announcement That Leaves Donald Trump Smiling
Posted on 01/14/2016 1:18:52 PM PST by BlackFemaleArmyColonel
Billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump just received a welcome endorsement from a country music legend.
According to The Daily Caller, Loretta Lynn recently announced her support for the front-running GOP candidate in an interview with Reuters. In fact, the 83-year-old star, who still tours and plays shows, said that she informed her fans after every concert that she was a supporter of Trump and was really looking at nobody else.
"When you get up there and try to say you want to see Hillary Clinton win, that wouldn't go over so big," Lynn said, alluding to the generally conservative nature of country music fans.
"Trump has sold me. What more can I say?" she continued.
"I just think he's the only one who's going to turn this country around," she added. "I'm going to let him call me."
Lynn went on to mention that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would be her second choice if Trump were no longer in the race for some reason.
This is a pretty big celebrity endorsement, at least for country music fans, and while Loretta Lynn certainly doesn't speak for everyone in the industry, she does serve as a good bellwether of how many individuals in country music may align themselves come Election Day.
Trump has been making solid gains and shoring up support all across the southern United States, and this endorsement from a country music legend certainly won't hurt his efforts at appealing to country music fans and Southerners.

Nice! Love it!! Free way to gather additional support and voters!
Why is it a “huge” announcement?
Sounds like a simple endorsement to me.
Woo and Yay!
Does George Will Know?
Someone should tell him.
Loretta Lynn is another ‘American Made’ person, who has had a life of heck and finally made it to the top...
I always listen to Country Music, there just isn’t any other kind for me...
Good Job Loretta and Trump!!!
“Boom”? Who wrote this, an 8 year old?
Like Trump, she also supported McConnell.
Ah, conservative treehouse. 6-year-olds.
Some old lady named after the Attorney General chick?
I must say that you made me LOL...
Love Lotetta and love that she’s lovin’ on Trump. :)
Saw this earlier. The coal miner’s daughter has been found to have common sense. She would find it highly unlikely to be a coal miner’s daughter in today’s age. 0, the dark won, continues to put those men out of work and few can now afford children.
Yeah, Trump had such a hard time, starting out with that measly hundred million from his daddy. He knows The Struggle. SMH
This is GREAT ! :-)
I wonder what ever happened to the mantra of “Shut up and sing”. It’s not like anyone cared what she thought yesterday.
