Loretta Lynn has lived a life that is almost hard to believe. A mother of six who grew up in a Kentucky holler and married young, she balanced her family and career and became one of America’s biggest country stars. And her songs, which often told stories and shared honest truths about the experience of being a woman in America – something that was not generally centered in the world of country music – are a big part of her legacy. sustainable.
On his 50th studio album, Still enough woman, she revisits some of those songs, like her 1970 hit “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, which is turned into a spoken word track. Lynn is also bringing back other classics through collaborations with artists like Margo Price and Tanya Tucker. And she wrote a brand new one, the title song, with her daughter.
