Loretta & the Trailblazers formed

Loretta's first ever band, Loretta & the Trailblazers, formed while she was living in Custer, WA and included her brother, Jay Lee Webb. She came to the attention of local record executives while playing local clubs, which led to her signing her very first recording contract with Zero Records in January 1960. Within months she had recorded her first single, "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl".
