Who is Patty Loveless?

Patty Loveless, is an American country music singer.

Since her emergence on the country music scene in late 1986 with her first album, Loveless has been one of the most popular female singers of the neotraditional country movement, although she has also recorded albums in the country pop and bluegrass genres.

Loveless was born in Pikeville, Kentucky, and was raised in Elkhorn City, Kentucky and Louisville, Kentucky and rose to stardom thanks to her blend of honky tonk and country-rock, not to mention a plaintive, emotional ballad style. Her late-1980s records were generally quite popular, earning her comparisons to Patsy Cline, but most critics agree that she truly came into her own as an artist in the early 1990s.

To date, Loveless has charted more than 40 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including five Number Ones. In addition, she has recorded 14 studio albums; in the United States, four of these albums have been certified platinum, while two have been certified gold.

She has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1988. Loveless is also a distant cousin of Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle.
