The acclaimed singer said in a statement that she has no plans to retire any time soon. Lynn added:

“I been here all along and I ain’t going nowhere.”


The album was initially set to be released a year ago, but production had to be postponed after Lynn had a stroke sixteen months ago.

She was performing at her 85th birthday bash at the time and had to be hospitalized. She had to postpone several other performances and concerts.


Lynn was paralyzed on one side of her body and had to use a walker, but that she made remarkable progress throughout the months.

The stroke forced her to take a much-needed break from her career, and she used the time to recover and rest.

Her doctors predicted a full recovery and fans followed her recuperation with great interest. They were delighted to see the singer getting stronger every day.


Lynn, also known as the Coal Miner’s Daughter and the First Lady of Country Music, started performing in the 1950’s by singing in local clubs with her band, the Trailblazers.

She signed her first contract in 1960 with United Western Recorders and toured the country to release her first album. Within two short years, she was already known as the number one female country singer.

Lynn released a Christmas album in 2016, her first in nearly five decades and "Wouldn't It Be Great" is her 41st album.


She collaborated with John Carter Cash and her daughter Patsy Lynn Russel, and the album was recorded in Tennessee.

It features 13 tracks, including the "The Coalminer's Daughter," "Don't Come Home a' Drinking," and "I'm Dying for Someone to Live For."

The last song in particular addresses the heartbreak of outliving her husband and two of her children, Betty Sue Lynn and Jack Benny Lynn.

"Wouldn't It Be Great" will be released on Friday, September 28.
