LAKE CITY, AR (KAIT) -

A Lake City man, making a name in Nashville working with a country music legend, has given back to his roots.

In the small town’s museum stands an autographed picture of Tim Cobb and country music icon Loretta Lynn.

Cobb has become a well-known clothing designer and has worked more than 20 years with Lynn.

“He designs all of Loretta Lynn’s clothes, all of her dresses for her performances and he has donated some of the things he has made,” Lake City Museum Committee member Brenda Hutcheson said.

The Lake City native gave the museum his first sewing machine, a pair of Loretta Lynn’s performance shoes and autographed photos and much more memorabilia.

One picture autographed by the country music star said, “thank you for letting me borrow your Lake City boy.” “Love you.”

“We are proud of his accomplishments and very thankful that he has made this donation to the museum so that everyone that comes to visit can see a little bit of our history and what Tim has done in the world,” Hutcheson said.

Cobb will soon open a Loretta Lynn museum near Nashville.

If you want to view the new exhibit, the Lake City Museum is open Wednesdays from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
