She said that she met Loretta for the first time at the CMAs in 1984.
Wynonna said that Loretta “was the first person who came over and hugged me,”
Since that time, Wynonna said that Loretta “was like an aunt to me.”
“We mustn’t ever forget how important this woman was…IS…to country music,” she added.
