ROLLING STONE: “LORETTA LYNN ON HER MEDAL OF FREEDOM: ‘ISN’T THAT SOMETHING?'”

The list of popular musicians awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom since the prestigious award was established 50 years ago, by then-President John F. Kennedy, is short and glorious. Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, B.B. King and Aretha Franklin are part of this select group; Bob Dylan received a Medal of Freedom last year.
