Betty Collins Brown

Composer / Performer

Betty Collins Brown is the 3rd child in a Virginia family of eleven children. Like Loretta Lynn, she grew up in a coal-mining town, with all the trials, troubles & tribulations…however, there was the joy of living a simple life with brothers and sisters who loved to sing and play music. Her songwriting testifies to that life and her love of the Lord. Listen now to the voice of a true mountain lady as she tells her story; then, watch the videos as she sings her own songs.
