Though Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson were stalwarts in the country music scene and shared a lasting friendship, their collaborative ventures in the studio were infrequent. Their partnership yielded the touching duet “Lay Me Down,” revealed to the public in 2016.

The song’s touching verses, “When they lay me down someday, my soul will rise, then fly away,” resonated deeply with listeners, capturing a calm acceptance of life’s eventual conclusion.

Reflecting on her grandmother’s enduring wisdom, Emmy Russell shared a treasured piece of advice from Lynn: to love God and follow His guidance. This reflection highlights Lynn’s strong faith and the profound impact she had through her music and spirit.
