Editorial Reviews

Loretta Lynn is a true icon of Country music and American culture. To honor the 50th year anniversary of her debut single, a diverse group of artists have come together to pay tribute to her in this stellar 12-hit collection. Lynn personally selected the artists which include (in alphabetical order) Sheryl Crow, Steve Earle, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Allison Moorer, Paramore, Reba featuring The Time Jumpers, Carrie Underwood, The White Stripes, Lucinda Williams, Gretchen Wilson, and Lee Ann Womack. Each artist personalized their version, recording with their own choice of producer and musicians.

Prime Cuts: Love is the Foundation (Faith Hill), You're Looking at Country (Carrie Underwood), If You're Gone Too Long (Reba and the Time Jumpers)

The songs of Loretta Lynn are so juicy that they can fill an entire tabloid. Over the course of the last half century, Lynn has not been reticent in giving voice to the socially repressed. In a time where birth control was only a hushed bedroom talk, Lynn sings about it educationally in "The Pill." As a result "The Pill" has liberated many women from the far too laborious act of making love. While society often treats divorced women as a social odium, Lynn addresses such a double standard in "Rated X." Lynn further gives voice to women by echoing the pains of what it means to be a veteran's wife in the plaintive "Dear Uncle Sam." In short, Lynn and her songs have been the voices of our society especially those who are socially repressed. Thus, it's only right that after 50 years since she released her debut single "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" that a tribute CD should be commissioned. For this effort, Lynn has carefully handpicked the artists who would contribute to it. And she sure picked a star studded list from both the country and rock genres. Some of them (such as Lucinda Williams, Reba, Gretchen Wilson and Faith Hill) sure are deserving chosen as they have continued to carve out the path of revolutionizing our society for the better first pioneered by Lynn.

While it's a good thing that contributors come from both the rock and country genres, this is also here the disparity becomes obvious. The more mainline country artists tend to have a more reverent treatment of their songs backed by a tighter and at times even polished production.

I just received Coal Miner's Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn yesterday and enjoyed it. It could have been a two CD set to fully appreciate the body of Loretta's work. Missing was The Pill which took Loretta's career to a whole new level. The choice of White Stripes for RatedX and Paramour for You Ain't Woman Enough is interesting. I especially liked Gretchen Wilson on Don't Come home A Drinkin and Carrie Underwood on If You're Looking at Country. Reba's cut was also enjoyable as was Faith Hill on Love is the Foundation. The idea to do Coal Miner's Daughter with Loretta, Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow brought the album to a nice close. But I also would suggest that you compliment the album with the real classics by Loretta herself. It was errie how much Sissy Spacek sounded like Loretta in performance and vocally in the film version of Coal Miner's Daughter.
I have seen Loretta perform live twice and what an experience it was. I list this on my list of all time favorite concerts. I can see how much losing her Husband, Doo, still affects her today. She also misses her duet partner, Conway Twitty. Another gone too soon person.

While I am not sure that all the artists on this tribute album work.....I do think each presents a fresh and unique look to the album.

Faith Hill, Reba and the White Stripes offer some of the better covers on this collection, while others seem uninspired and odd choices. If there was a 3.5 star option, this album would fall there....not because the music is bad, just the song selection did capture the best of Loretta.

I believe I heard she chose the songs for the artists, so they can't individually be blamed. Proceed with caution and be sure you sample the tracks here first...keep in mind the traditional country sound is being used.

Tribute albums rarely work. Sometimes those trusted with covering a well-known song by a big artist fail to live up to the original version of the song and other times the artist just can't come close to the artist he or she is trying to imitate. Other times the covering artist simply takes too much liberty with a big, well-known song and ends up missing the point of what made the song and artist popular to begin with. Fortunately, these things aren't a problem with Coal Miner's Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn. First, I'm glad someone had the idea to honor Loretta Lynn before she's dead. It seems too often we get tribute albums after a big star like Lynn has passed away. What works well with this album is that since it honors a big icon in country music like Loretta Lynn, the album's producers managed to involve some of country music's biggest artists (and a few others outside of country). The final product is a really decent collection of Loretta Lynn's hits from over the years covered by some big artists.

For a tribute album, this one packs a punch. With an all-star line up and a smattering of some of Loretta Lynn's greatest hits, this makes for an enjoyable listening experience. Like any album full of cover songs or something that could be classified as a "greatest hits" collection there are some flaws: songs that probably would have made for a more pleasurable listening experience, a lack of songs from all eras of her music career, songs that really didn't go well with the performer's voices (Kid Rock) and others that could have used a bit more personality and originality from the covering artist (Reba McEntire).
