Incredibly sad news to report from Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The Country Music Hall of Fame member’s oldest grandson, Jeffrey Allen Lynn, passed away unexpectedly Monday, June 6 at age 47.
According to a post on Loretta’s Facebook page, Jeffrey lived and worked at Loretta’s ranch. He was the oldest son of Loretta’s son, Jack Benny Lynn, who died in 1984. Jeffrey leaves behind three kids himself — Jory, Katie and Cody.
As a result of the loss, Loretta has canceled her shows in Oklahoma on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11. If you have tickets for those shows, they have been rescheduled for July 8 and Nov. 12, respectively.
