LORETTA LYNN’S 50-YEAR CAREER HONORED WITH SPECIAL EVENTS

Loretta Lynn will be celebrated in song on ‘A Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn,’ set for November 9 release on Columbia Records.

The label is mum on which artists we can expect to hear on the album but the disc coincides with several events designed to celebrate 50 years since Loretta’s song ‘I’m a Honky Tonk Girl‘ was released.

Planned events to celebrate Loretta include the September reissue of her 1976 memoir ‘Loretta Lynn: Coal Miner’s Daughter.’ In addition, The Recording Academy will host ‘A Grammy Salute to Country Music Honoring Loretta Lynn’ on October 12 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
