She was born Peggy Sue Webb on March 24 1947 in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky. She moved to Indiana at the age of 12 due to her father's illness. She then began performing with her sisters in Indiana, and then became a featured act in Loretta Lynn
's early shows. Sue helped write a few of Lynn's compositions, including "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)." In 1969, she signed with Decca Records

That year, she released an album of the same name, and the second single from that album titled, "I'm Gettin' Tired of Babyin' You" also reached the Top 30. After Sue had a hit with her most successful single, "All-American Husband," she left Decca Records after releasing two albums. She recorded two albums in the 70s for two small labels.
