Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute To Loretta Lynn Album Is A Heartfelt Tip Of The Hat 

Coal Miner's Daughter A Tribute to Loretta Lynn
by

For many decades, Lynn has been one of the toughest country music queens who paved the way for women who wanted to write what they sang. So, On November 9, 2010, various country music artists joined together to release the album Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn to pay homage to the country legend. 

On its debut, the album landed on the no. 14 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and even ranked 46 on the Billboard 200 chart.

The Album Comes With Some of Loretta Lynn’s Feistiest Songs in Her Catalog

Most songs in Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn highlights her signature feistiness. Gretchen Wilson kicked it off with “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” a suitable track for Wilson’s vocal swagger that imbibes the song with so much girl power. There’s also the spirited anthem as sung by none other than Carrie Underwood and the weeper “Somebody Somewhere” by Lucinda Williams.

Faith Hill stayed quite restrained on “Love Is The Foundation,” a love ballad that revealed Lynn’s vulnerable side. On the other hand, the White Stripes get to the bare bones of “Rated X,” criticizing the double standard toward divorced women that still applies in many quarters.

Alan Jackson and Martina McBride also delivered a beautiful duet of “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.” And who knew Paramore’s Hayley Williams could honky-tonk? Williams set pop-punk aside as she did a guitar and vocal rendition of “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man).”

One of the album’s highlights as well was when Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert joined Loretta Lynn herself as they blasted “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Here’s the complete tracklist:

  1. “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)” by Gretchen Wilson
  2. “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl” by Lee Ann Womack
  3. “Rated ‘X’ “by The White Stripes
  4. “You’re Lookin’ at Country” by Carrie Underwood
  5. “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” by Alan Jackson and Martina McBride
  6. “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)” by Paramore
  7. “Love Is the Foundation” by Faith Hill
  8. “After the Fire Is Gone” by Steve Earle and Allison Moorer
  9. “If You’re Not Gone Too Long” by Reba McEntire featuring The Time Jumpers
  10. “I Know How” by Kid Rock
  11. “Somebody Somewhere (Don’t Know What He’s Missin’ Tonight)” by Lucinda Williams
  12. “Coal Miner’s Daughter” by Loretta Lynn, Sheryl Crow, and Miranda Lambert

Truly, Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn is one heartfelt tip of the hat to one of the country’s true legends who touch countless lives through her music.
