Loretta Lynnis still a coal miner’s daughter.
To country fans she is so much more. For fifty years now Loretta has been entertaining country fans. To celebrate her fifty years in country music she has teamed up with some of country’s other great stars to re-record some of her classic hits.
The lead-off single from the album Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute To Loretta Lynnis Coal Miner’s Daughter and the guests on the track are the great Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow.
I love this song. It’s always been one of my favorites and the remake is great. Miranda and Sheryl add their classic licks to the song and it turns out great.
Coal Miner’s Daughter is the classic country autobiography. Country stars have for years described their lives through song and people with similar backgrounds have connected. The songs gain widespread exposure when the melody is catchy and the story is real. People respect real.
Loretta Lynn is a country rags to riches story. She’s still going strong after fifty years in the business. She’s had hits for most of those years and while she hasn’t released a ton of new music of late she’s still touring and entertaining almost nonstop. Her last new album sold well and received great critical praise and won awards.
This new album should be full of great songs. The songlist includes Loretta’s best hits and some of country’s greatest singers have come out to pay tribute to one of their heroes.
