Loretta Lynn - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate [Updated 12 May 2022]

 Loretta Lynn - Discography

Few performers in country music have proved as influential and iconic as Loretta Lynn. At a time when women usually took a back seat to men in Nashville, Lynn was a voice of strength, independence, and sometimes defiance, writing and singing songs that spoke to the concerns of working-class women with unapologetic honesty. She could sing of her hardscrabble childhood ("Coal Miner's Daughter"), deal with the realities of relationships ("Fist City," "You Ain't Woman Enough"), deliver proto-feminist anthems ("The Pill"), and explore mature romance (her series of duets with Conway Twitty) and sound perfectly authentic at every turn. Lynn's voice, strong but naturalistic and matched to tough, lively honky tonk arrangements, reinforced the home truths of her songs, and her success blazed trails for other female country artists. As a member of the Grand Ol' Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, she's been honored by the country music establishment while still doing things her own way. She was a frequent presence on the country charts from 1960 to 1981, and even as tastes changed and her record sales faded, she continued to be a potent live attraction and a major influence on other artists. And at the age of 72, Lynn was discovered by a new generation of music fans when alternative rock star Jack White, a longtime fan, produced her 2004 album, Van Lear Rose. It wasn't Lynn's last hurrah, however. A few years later, she entered the studio with daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash to record hundreds of songs that would come out as a series of albums in the 2010s and beyond, starting with 2016's Full Circle.

Friend Ozzie. it is my sad duty to post that last night Loretta Lynn went to peacefully to sleep and this morning, Oct 4th/22 - she did not wake up and is now back in the arms of her Oliver(her much beloved husband of fifty yrs who passed in '96). The length of her life was considerable, our Coal Miner's Daughter was 90 years old at the time of her passing and apparently, was still cutting recording deals. Your many posts serve to perfectly underscore just how incredibly talented Loretta Lynn really was and for those of us that were fans of hers, just how lucky we were to have been born in her life-time..
