The Coal Miner’s Daughter, 90, passed away on October 4 at the sprawling 3,500-acre ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., she bought 56 years ago with late hubby Mooney Lynn, who passed away in 1996.

Sources revealed that Lynn left behind “hundreds of unreleased tunes recorded in her final years with John Carter Cash — the son of county superstars June Carter Cash and Johnny Cash — at his family’s log cabin studio near Nashville.”

An insider said Loretta may have left as many as “300 tracks, enough for more than a dozen future albums.”

“Loretta saw Johnny Cash himself recorded hundreds of songs before he died in 2003, and the album that was put out after his death sold better than the ones he was releasing when he was still alive,” a source dished.

“Loretta left behind a gold mind. These recordings are worth $20 million or more. She was constantly concerned about the welfare of her family after she was no longer here, but they will be well taken care of because of her hard work in her dying days.”

“Loretta worked very hard to stockpile music that would only see the light of day after she passed,” a family friend revealed. “It was her way of providing for her family when she isn’t around and keeps her music alive in the hearts of her adoring fans.”

A pal dished that frail Lynn was “absolutely heartbroken” when she was forced to step away from her career in 2017 following a debilitating stroke.

“Loretta felt like she was letting her family down,” the source added. “Her son Enie served as her bandleader, twin daughters Patsy and Peggy sang backup, and Loretta’s granddaughter Tayla also performed with her. Touring with Loretta was their main source of income, and Loretta knew they needed to be taken care of when they went away.”

The singer told pals she wanted her final resting place to be next to her late husband, Mooney, and their departed children Jack Benny and Betty Sue at the family cemetery on the grounds of the 3,500 acre-ranch in Tennessee.
