Loretta Lynn Performs With White Stripes

Loretta Lynn will perform with the White Stripes during a sold-out show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on April 19. The White Stripes -- the sibling rock duo of Jack and Meg White -- included Lynn in the list of dedications for their White Blood Cells album and also recorded Lynn’s 1972 hit “Rated X” for European release. After hearing the cover version, Lynn invited the two musicians to her Hurricane Mills, Tenn., home for a dinner of chicken and dumplings. The conversation led to the invitation to perform at the New York show. A spokesperson says Lynn’s favorite White Stripes song is “Hotel Yorba.” 04/15/03
