It’s almost Halloween, so what better time to talk about ghosts?
Honestly, I am down to talk about ghosts at just about any time. While I am pretty skeptical about believing all of the ghost hunting shows I watch, I do believe in all things spiritual.
So when I saw that a third-season episode of Celebrity Ghost Stories featured the late, great Loretta Lynn, I was completely sold.
The episode begins with a history of Lynn’s life and the ghost experiences she had as a kid. Her mother was very psychic, and her grandfather was Cherokee Indian. According to Lynn, her momma seemed to take after him.
That psychic ability also seemed to have been passed to Lynn herself. She tells about how she had a dream that her daddy had died.
“Spirits don’t scare me, really. What scares me is my dreams. When I dream a bad dream, it just scares me to death sometimes because I just sit and wait for something to happen. And 99 percent of the time, something bad will happen if I dream.”
The night that Lynn’s daddy died, she dreamed of him in his coffin, and sure enough, the next morning she got the news.
A majority of the episode focuses on Loretta Lynn’s haunted home she owned with her husband that was built in the 1800s and used as a hospital for soldiers during the civil war.
Lynn claims that she heard people walking around during the night, that her pictures frames would be moved on the wall, and that her children claimed to see a woman dressed in white who would stand at the end of their bed.
If you know anything about “women in white” ghost stories, then you know how eerie this story is.
Lynn does actually find out who this woman is. Her name was Beula Anderson, and she mourned herself to death after losing her baby. Which follows the “woman in white” story close enough that I could get chills.
I don’t want to give away the whole episode, and frankly, Loretta Lynn tells the stories better than I can.
So if you’re looking for a spooky watch this Halloween, check out all of these tales told by the legend herself.
