Honky Tonk Girls were women who entertained cowboys in saloons, later called honky-tonks, during the 1800s in Texas. In her debut 1960 single, Honky Tonk Girl, Loretta Lynn, undeniably one of the biggest female country stars of all time, detailed how a woman expresses grief and what a damn good drink could do to fill the emptiness. She wrote the song using a seventeen-dollar guitar that her husband bought her as an anniversary present.
“So fill my glass up to the rim
To lose my memory of him
I've lost everything in this world
And now I'm a Honky Tonk Girl”
