It’s no secret that Miranda Lambert is a huge Loretta Lynn fan, and she’s one of several stars who participated in an upcoming documentary titled American Masters – Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl, which is set to air on PBS.
The music industry may worship youth, but according to Bonnie Raitt, ”in the fringe of the business, ageism isn’t as much of a thing.” Both Raitt, 66, who has a new record, ”Dig in Deep,” out this month, and Lucinda Williams, 63, have remained prolific, to critical acclaim, since they rose to fame in the ’80s.
Loretta Lynn is getting ready to release her first new LP since the Jack White-produced 2004 album Van Lear Rose . Full Circle is out March 4 via Legacy Recordings. It was produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash and recorded at Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
SXSW has revealed the lineup for the music portion of the annual festival, and among the acts set to take the stages is country icon Loretta Lynn. In addition to Lynn, Whitney Rose, Bobby Bare Jr., Lydia Loveless, Corb Lund and 8 Ball Aitken are among the country, folk, Americana, bluegrass and alt-country acts scheduled to perform at SXSW 2016.
Loretta Lynn’s upcoming album, Full Circle , finds her revisiting some of her biggest hits and debuting a few fresh numbers. One new composition is “Everything It Takes,” a light, folky country song that she tells Rolling Stone is a “woman song – something more for a woman.”
