Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and more legendary female country singers were paid tribute on the PBS program, Iconic Women of Country. The special, which aired on Monday (6/1), covered the influence of the iconic performers and how, at times, the songs reflected their personal lives.

Country singer Kathy Mattea opened the show with the poignant observation, saying, “It took some unique women pioneers to kick those doors down.”
