1. She is the queen of country music. Loretta Lynn’s not joking when she sings “If you’re looking at me/You’re looking at country.” The Country Music Hall of Famer has won more awards and honours (including the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom) and had more top ten hits (16 No. 1 hits out of 70 charted songs), and earned more titles (first woman country singer to pen a No. 1 hit) than just about anyone else in country music. She’s recorded 60 albums and sold 48 million copies worldwide, and has a back catalogue of classics that includes Hello Darlin’, Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind) and You Ain’t Woman Enough. Even many non-country music fans know of her thanks to the Oscar-winning 1980 biopic (starring Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones) based on Lynn’s bestselling 1976 autobiography, Coal Miner’s Daughter.

Country Music Icon, Loretta Lynn has to reschedule her performances in OK after suffering two broken ribs last week. “I hate more than anything to miss shows, but sometimes you just have to,” states Lynn.
Official Loretta Lynn Quote:
“I’m like an accident waiting to happen these days,” laughs Loretta, “I was trying to get my guitar down out of my closest and the dang thing fell on top of me causing me to fall into my dresser. All this happened right before my big Labor Day Concert at my Ranch in Hurricane Mills. I didn’t know how bad I hurt myself until the next day. Come to find out I had broken two of my ribs. We are rescheduling the shows now, I hate more than anything to have to miss shows, but it’s something you just have to do. I just hope everyone comes back to see me in OK.” End Quote

Loretta Lynn has a slew of projects ready for release, but she also hopes to start one with a familiar former collaborator.
“I think I’m going to go after Jack White and give him another call to do another album,” the country singer told Billboard in a recent interview. White produced, sang and played various instruments on Lynn’s 2004 record Van Lear Rose. Their experiment was a smash success, receiving heaps of critical praise.
While fans of Van Lear keep their fingers crossed for a reunion, Lynn will remain active; she says she’s got about 19 projects already finished. These include a Christmas album, a religious album and a record of mountain songs she recorded with Shawn Camp.
As for White — who released his debut solo effort, Blunderbuss, last year — he’s returned to the studio with the Dead Weather, who have been silent since they wrapped up an extensive tour following the release of their 2010 debut, Sea of Cowards. In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, White mentioned the group was spending a lot of time together both in and out of the studio: “All the Raconteurs and all the Dead Weather live in Nashville now, so we often go on trips together, because we’re all just good pals. We’ve recorded some things, too.”
