Famous country ladies honor Loretta Lynn with impressive cover of 'Coal Miner's Daughter'
Leading ladies of country music joined forces to honor Loretta Lynn with an incredible rendition of "Coal Miner's Daughter."
In 2011, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, and The Judds teamed up for a remarkable performance of Lynn’s hit song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” during the “ACM Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country” television special.
Each of the talented artists had their own moment to shine as they shared the stage and lyrics of the iconic tune fairly.

“None of us would be doing what we do if she hadn’t done it first,” McBride said. “It’s no wonder the first lady of country music is Loretta Lynn.”
Unfortunately, Lynn, 86, who paved the way for all of their careers, was forced to miss out the performance because of knee medical procedure.
The First Lady of Country Music, however, expressed her thanks towards them by means of a pre-recorded video played beforehand.
Lynn, who is recognized by the strength and quality of her voice, suffered a stroke in May 2017 and then broke her hip in January 2018.
In an interview with People, the country icon said that she has been working hard to get back out on the road since.
"I wasn’t going to let it stop me," she insisted. "You just can’t sit down and say ‘Hey, take me.'"
When Lynn realized that she was having a stroke, she instantly thought about her career.
"I wondered if I could sing. Mommy said I was born singin’. That’s all I’ve ever done. I couldn’t believe that that could be taken away," she said.
Lynn added that the recovery process has been tough for her.
"Your mind tells you, ‘You can!’ but your body soon tells you, ‘No you can’t quite do this.’ Got to work at it," she continued.
After several delays because of her wellbeing, the legendary singer's new studio album, "Wouldn't It Be Great," was at last released on September 28.
Lynn, who has sold more than 45 million albums worldwide, will appear in person to receive CMT's Artist of a Lifetime award on October 17 during CMT's 2018 Artists of the Year event.
The "Fist City" singer has earned numerous awards and other accolades for her groundbreaking role in country music.
