"Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn" – All-Star Collection Slated To Release This Fall

A galaxy of stars from throughout the world of music will celebrate Country Music Hall of Fame member and GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award winner Loretta Lynn, as Columbia Nashville prepares for the November 9th release of Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn.

With participating artists and additional information still to come, the album coincides with an array of 50th anniversary celebratory events, including the September 2010 paperback re-issue of Lynn’s 1976 bestselling memoir, Loretta Lynn: Coal Miner’s Daughter. This October, The Recording Academy will host GRAMMY Salute to Country Music, a star-filled tribute concert honoring Lynn at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, where she’ll be presented with The Recording Academy’s President’s Merit Award in recognition of her enduring contributions to country music. Earlier this year, her landmark song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” was one of only 25 sound recordings chosen in 2010 for preservation within the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress, which annually honors a select group of recordings for their cultural, historic, or aesthetic significance.
