Loretta Lynn Profiled in Upcoming PBS Documentary

Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire Share Thoughts in American Masters Series

Get ready to see Loretta Lynn like you’ve never seen her before.

According to People magazine, the trailblazing singer will be profiled in American Masters — Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl, an upcoming PBS documentary coming out, filled with home movies and performances, along with interviews with famous friends and fans like Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, Jack White, Reba McEntire and Sheryl Crow.

In a preview clip, Lynn reveals that both her parents were very musical, and that it was just a part of life where she grew up in Kentucky. But she took music a step further.

“When I start singing, why, I looked at the songbook and said, ‘Why heck, this is easy.’ So I threw the songbook down and wrote my own songs.”

Lambert shares her thoughts on the primary reason for Lynn’s continued popularity.

“Loretta always just said exactly what she was going through right then in her music,” Lambert said. “That’s why it resonates with us.”

American Masters — Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl premieres March 4 on PBS. On the same day, Lynn will release Full Circle, her first album in more than 10 years.
