Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle’s Brother, Herman Webb, Dies at Age 83

The brother of Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle has died at the age of 83. According to a post on Gayle’s social media accounts, Herman Webb passed away on Saturday, July 28 surrounded by family members.

“Our brother, Herman Webb passed away this morning in Kentucky with his wonderful children around him,” she wrote. “Some of you may know Herman from the countless tours he gave of the old home place in Kentucky or from his days performing with his band. He was a great musician! I called Herman ‘The Sheriff of Butcher Hollow.’ I even found him a badge to make it ‘official’ 😉 I know he is now and forever a sheriff in Heaven. We love and miss you, Herman!”

Gayle’s tribute did not include any information about his passing for funeral arrangements.

Lynn has yet to comment about her brother’s death.

Webb, the third oldest child in the family, often gave personal guided tours of the family’s original home on Van Lear, Kentucky. He is survived by his famous sisters, as well as sisters Peggy and Betty. The family previously lost their brother Donald in 2017.
