Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow have joined Loretta Lynn on a remake of "Coal Miner's Daughter," the first single from an upcoming tribute album to the Country Music Hall of Fame member. The single will be shipped to country radio stations on Tuesday (Sept. 14). The digital single will be available on Sept. 28. "I love Miranda and Sheryl, and I really felt they both brought something different singing style-wise to this song," Lynn told Billboard. "Miranda is so country and has a sassiness to her you can hear it as soon as she sings her first line, 'My daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine.' ... Sheryl adds such a soulfulness to her lines. I loved both. I am so happy and proud they did the song with me." The album, Coal Miner's Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn, is scheduled for a Nov. 9 release on Sony Music Nashville. As previously announced, Lynn personally picked Crow and Lambert to appear on the album, as well as Steve Earle, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Martina McBride, Allison Moorer, Paramore, Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, the White Stripes, Lucinda Williams, Gretchen Wilson and Lee Ann Womack.
