From The Tennessean...
Loretta Lynn's songs have been part of the American musical landscape for 50 years: Her debut single, "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl," was issued in 1960.
This November, Lynn's legacy will be celebrated with a tribute album called Coal Miner's Daughter, featuring a slew of admirers including The White Stripes, Alan Jackson, Sheryl Crow, Faith Hill, Steve Earle, Kid Rock, Miranda Lambert, Allison Moorer, Martina McBride, Paramore, Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Lucinda Williams, Gretchen Wilson and Lee Ann Womack.
"I am so happy that these singers wanted to do this record," Lynn said in a statement. "I love 'em all, and it was so great to hear all the different ways they did my hits."
The album is due for a Nov. 9 release.
