Patty was the sixth of seven children of Naomie and John Ramey, who was a coal miner. Patty’s interest in music dates back to her early age when she first heard her sister Dottie and brother Roger perform. In 1969, as a young teenager, she teamed up with her brother and performed at the Lincoln Jamboree. This was her first public performance for which she was paid $5. In the early 1970s, Patty alongside her brother Roger toured Kentucky’s club circuit as the Singin’ Swingin’ Rameys. Patty attended Fairdale High School in Louisville, Kentucky, from which she matriculated in 1975.
In 1975, Patty joined the Wilburn Brothers’ band, and soon became their lead female vocalist. After several years spent touring in North Carolina, regularly performing in clubs and bars, in 1985 Patty relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where she signed a short-term and singles-only recording deal with MCA Nashville. In December 1985, Loveless released her first official single “Lonely Days, Lonely Nights”, and in 1986, her debut studio album “Patty Loveless” hit the charts featuring hit single “I Did”, a song which she wrote while still a teenager. Although not scoring a huge commercial success, these achievements earned her a long-term recording deal and provided the basis for her current net worth.
The real breakthrough in Patty Loveless’ music career occurred after her second studio album – “If My Heart Had Windows” – was released in 1988. This was followed by an invitation to the Grand Ole Opry as well as collaborations with Reba McEntire, George Jones and George Strait. Her third album – “Honky Tonk Angel”, released later in 1988 – produced two No. 1 hit singles – “Timber, I’m Falling In Love” and “Chains”. All these successful ventures helped Patty Loveless to dramatically increase her net worth.
Since then, Patty has released 11 more studio albums, 14 in total, with more than 40 singles reaching the Billboard Hot Country Charts. Some of her most recent albums include “Sleepless Nights” released in 2008 and “Mountain Soul II” which hit the charts in 2009. It is certain that all these accomplishments have helped Patty Loveless to add a significant sum to the total size of her net worth.
Patty Loveless is still among the most popular country musicians, and for her contribution to country music, in 2005 she was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, while in 2011 likewise into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame.
When it comes to her personal life, Patty has married twice. In 1976, she married Terry Lovelace, who she met while performing with the Wilburn Brothers. However, after almost 10 years of marriage and mutual musical performances, the couple divorced. Since 1989, Patty has been married to her producer Emory Gordy Jr.
