Sheryl Crow went in to the studio for a very special tribute to a music icon.

ET is with the singer while she shoots a video for her new single that pairs her with country legend Loretta Lynn for the November 9 release of Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn.

“As a songwriter, she liberated us,” Sheryl says of Loretta. “She gave us carte blanche to write about everything. She’s the godmother of us all.”

On a personal note, she gushed about getting to spend the day with one of her idols, saying, “It’s an honor to be here and it’s a blast! It’s so much fun to hang out with her. The stories and how generous she is … It’s just wonderful.”

The title track and first single, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” features Loretta, Sheryl, and Miranda Lambert.

“I love both these women,” Miranda tells ET. “They’re huge influences to me, so I’m just like dang glad to be here. This is a good day.”

Loretta chimes in on the love fest, saying, “I love these girls. I’ve known Sheryl for a long time in my life and when I first met her, I fell in love with her. I just thought she was great.”

The album features an all-star group of artists personally chosen by Loretta to sing a dozen of her classic songs, including some of her award-winning duets with Conway Twitty.
