Loretta Lynn Will Drop Her 50th Studio Album In March, And It Will Feature Some Big Names
The music legend is 88 years old!
To mark the 50th anniversary of her No. 1 Billboard country chart hit “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Loretta Lynn shared some exciting news. The 88-year-old music legend announced the impending release of her 50th studio album, “Still Woman Enough.”
Set to release on March 19, the 13-song collection includes collaborations with some of the biggest female names in country music, including Carrie Underwood, Margo Price, Reba McEntire and Tanya Tucker.
“I am just so thankful to have some of my friends join me on my new album. We girl singers gotta stick together,” Lynn said in a statement on her website. “It’s amazing how much has happened in the fifty years since ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ first came out and I’m extremely grateful to be given a part to play in the history of American music.”
Lynn has also been spreading the word – and the country love – on her Twitter page.
