Country legend Loretta Lynn is celebrating her birthday with a star-studded performance of her smash hit, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter.’
Loretta Lynn has been called the queen of country music. Her iconic songs have truly stood the test of time and they still resonate with fans today.
Over the years, Loretta has written every single song that she recorded. Writing was actually more important to her than singing and the fans responded in waves.
She has been called a ‘trailblazer’ and a ‘powerful voice for women.’ Her unique style and heartfelt lyrics paved the way for other female voices.
Now, this talented musician is about to turn 87 years old and she’s ringing in her next year in an amazing way. Surrounded by friends, such as George Strait, Tanya Tucker, Little Big Town and Alison Krauss, Loretta sings ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter.’
“Well, I was borned a coal miner’s daughter
In a cabin, on a hill in Butcher Holler
We were poor but we had love
That’s the one thing that daddy made sure of
He shoveled coal to make a poor man’s dollar”
Everyone on stage joins in for the celebration and it’s a truly a star-studded affair. With a recently released new album, there seems to be no slowing down for Loretta Lynn. She’s living proof that age is just a number.
When you have a dream in your heart, there is nothing that can keep you from pursuing it. This pioneer in country music truly made her mark on the industry and it seems that there is no end in sight.
