Veteran Newsman Mike Wallace Joins Loretta At Home And
On Tour For Candid Interviews – Set To Air In Fall 2004
Nashville, TN – Country icon Loretta Lynn recently sat down with Mike Wallace for two intimate 60 Minutes interviews at her Hurricane Mills, TN home and on the road at a concert in North Charleston, SC. From an impoverished childhood to the pinnacle of fame, Lynn reflects on her life with a straight-forward, no-nonsense style that has captivated audiences for more than four decades.
During Wallace’s tour of the Loretta Lynn Ranch, Lynn reminisces with Wallace on a stroll through a replica of her Butcher Holler, KY childhood home and the Tara-style plantation house she bought with husband, Doolittle, in 1966. Lynn reveals she has some regrets that her career and constant touring kept her away from her family and discusses fonder memories of gardening and arrow-head hunting on her sprawling 3500-acre estate.
In North Charleston following the touching one-on-one interview on her tour bus, Wallace sat stage-side for the capacity-crowd concert until Lynn invited him on-stage to join her during the encore performance of her classic “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” Lynn’s candid conversation with Wallace focuses on the performer’s legendary career filled with remarkable triumphs and personal heartaches.
The 60 Minutes profile follows on the heels of Lynn’s critically-acclaimed Interscope album release, Van Lear Rose. Comprised of 13 self-penned songs, Van Lear Rose garnered Lynn’s highest career sales debut entering Billboard’s Top 200 at # 24 and Country Album chart at # 2.
Lynn’s 60 Minutes piece is scheduled to air in Fall 2004.
