Loretta Lynn’s New Music Set for 2015

She Signs to Sony's Legacy Recordings

Loretta Lynn will release an album of new material in 2015, marking the first album in her new multi-album deal with Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings.

Over the past seven years, Lynn has recorded several albums’ worth of new material at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, with her daughter Patsy L. Russell and John Carter Cash producing.

Lynn won two Grammys following her previous album, 2004’s Van Lear Rose, which she recorded with producer Jack White. In 2010, Sony released Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn, a collection of her hits performed by Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Sheryl Crow, Miranda Lambert, Kid Rock, Reba McEntire and Paramore, among others.

According to press materials, the new project “travels back and explores Loretta’s musical history from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards to songs newly-written for the project.”

Lynn made a surprise appearance on the CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 5) in Nashville, singing “You’re Lookin’ at Country” with Kacey Musgraves. The song was a Top 10 hit for Lynn in 1971.

Lynn’s No. 1 singles in the ’60s and ’70s include “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “One’s on the Way,” “Rated X” and “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” She also recorded a series of hit duets with the late Conway Twitty.

She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988.
