“It’s a sad day for country music and a great loss for those of us who knew him. I was blessed to call George my friend. He was one of the best country singers there ever was. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Nancy, and all of his family. It’s a sad, sad day.” -Loretta Lynn
Anyone who knows Jack White knows his love for classic country music. Besides his recent collaboration with Wanda Jackson, Jack White produced the critically lauded Loretta Lynn comeback album Van Lear Roseback in 2004.
So it’s only fitting that, in celebration of Record Store Day, newly minted Record Store Ambassador White took it upon himself to construct a recording booth in his Nashville-based Third Man Records studio and record a cover of one of Lynn’s most famous song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” Per White’s predilection for all things old-fashioned, the track is sufficiently crackly, simulating the sound of well-worn vinyl.
White also extended an offer to any nearby musicians to stop by and record their song to vinyl.
If the official Third Man Records Instagram is to be believed, none other than Neil Young stopped by to take up White’s offer.
