Loretta Lynn knows a thing or two about talent after fifty years in the music business, so it’s no wonder she can easily smell success for young singers coming up through the ranks. Take Miranda Lambert, for example. The Texas songbird had the chance to collaborate with Ms. Loretta and Sheryl Crow on a remake of the country legend’s signature hit, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter,’ for last year’s Loretta Lynn tribute album, and apparently she’s eager to work with Loretta again — this time on some new material. Miranda has appealed to Loretta to co-write a new song with her, and it sounds as if Loretta is definitely on board.
“She is feisty! That girl’s something else,” Loretta tells the Toledo Free Press. “She wrote me a letter the other day, and she said it’s time we start writing. And she sent me the idea for the song, so I’m going to have to call her and tell her let’s get with it.” (more…)

Loretta Lynn weighed in on the current state of country music in the new preface of her recently reissued biography, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter,’ stating that some of country’s new crop aren’t exactly country and should really stick to pop music. But there are a few among the newer generation of country stars to whom the 76-year-old icon gives a hearty thumbs-up — and one of them better watch her future husband!
“I like Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend Blake Shelton,” Loretta tells the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I kissed him on the cheek and she said, ‘You’re trying to take him away from me,’ and I said, ‘He’s my boyfriend now!'”
(Though it’s all in good fun, Loretta knows a thing or two about country music cat-fights!)
“And I love Darius Rucker,” Loretta continues. “Now that’s country. Also, Garth Brooks is coming back. That little booger is one of the greatest entertainers you’ll ever see.” (more…)
