Jason Galaz of Exit Reality Elite writes that Lynn moved into the home in 1961 with help from Decca Records annd television and touring partners the Wilburn Brothers.

"It is said they hosted a house warming party and got their Opry friends to chip in to donate household items and appliances," Galaz adds. "Patsy Cline ordered curtains and ordered furniture to be made. Loretta and her husband, a mechanic had sold everything to get to Nashville from Washington state."

Lynn only lived in the house briefly. Her upward trajectory as a country star allowed her family to relocate in the spring of 1963 to a 1910-era farm house in Goodlettsville.

The Madison residence is not to be confused with the much larger Kingston Springs home Jake Owens bought from Lynn and put on the market in 2018.

The "Coal Miner's Daughter" singer eventually ended up in Hurricane Mills, the site of the Humpreys County, Tennessee getaway Loretta Lynn's Ranch. The ranch offers camping options as well as a museum covering Lynn's career and events throughout the year.
