Loretta Lynn Tribute Album Scheduled for Nov. 9
A tribute album to Loretta Lynn has been scheduled for Nov. 9 release on Columbia Nashville. Titled Coal Miner's Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn, the list of participating artists has not been revealed but will represent a variety of genres. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Lynn's first single, "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl." Lynn and her music will be honored with an all-star concert at the Ryman Auditorium in October as part of the Grammy Salute to Country Music series. Earlier this year, "Coal Miner's Daughter" was chosen for preservation within the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress, which annually honors select recordings for cultural, historic or aesthetic significance. Lynn's 1976 memoir, Coal Miner's Daughter, will be reissued in paperback in September.
