The country club is coming together to mourn the passing of the legendary Loretta Lynn.

Lynn, 90, passed away in her sleep on Wednesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Country stars came out en masse to honour the four-time Grammy winner who received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.

“So sorry to hear about my sister, friend Loretta. We’ve been like sisters all the years we’ve been in Nashville,” Parton wrote. “She was a wonderful human being, wonderful talent, had millions of fans and I’m one of them. I miss her dearly as we all will. May she rest in peace.”

She showed us all how to unapologetically tell the truth,” Carly Pearce wrote on Instagram. “One of the greatest there ever will be. I’ll be singing ‘Dear Miss Loretta’ with a little extra love tonight at the @opry. Now she really is a Honky Tonk Angel.”
