Ernest Ray Lynn continues to play in his Mother's band, "The Coal Miners." He also sings with his mother, and at times he may do a special solo spot during Loretta's concerts. He also writes songs. Ernest's son, Ernie Jr., manages his grandmother's official eBay store.

Betty Sue Lynn Perry got married, and wrote some of the hits Loretta had in the 1960's. These included: Wine, Women, and Song; Before I'm Over You; The Other Woman; and The Home You're Tearin' Down. Betty Sue Lynn did not write these songs, Another songwriter by the name Betty Sue Perry did. Betty Sue Lynn wrote under the name Tracey Lee, the songs she wrote that her mother recorded are Ain't It Funny, Sundown Tavern, Too Wild To Be Tamed and When You're Poor.

The twins, Peggy and Patsy, became a Country Music duo. Touring with Loretta, and on their own. Also recording and writing songs. They even did a little acting by appearing on an episode of "The Dukes of Hazzard." It should be noted Loretta also did a different episode of "The Dukes of Hazzard" before the girls made their debut.
