Loretta Lynn Gets 'Definitive'
The most revered of Jack White's friends, legendary country singer Loretta Lynn is laying out her four decades in music with a career-spanning compilation released today. Competing directly with Mr. White (whose new album, Get Behind Me Satan, also comes out today), Lynn will certainly lose the sales race, but odds are she won't mind losing to White.
Simply called The Definitive Collection, the 25-track "best of" owes its existence to MCA/Nashville. All of the songs, from "Coal Miner's Daughter" to "Trouble in Paradise," have been shined up and remastered, with a booklet stuffed full of liner notes and photos accompanying the release.
The last proper album Lynn released was 2004's brilliant Van Lear Rose, which won her a Grammy. The aforementioned Jack White produced the effort, wrote Lynn a song, and even provided vocals for second single Portland, Oregon.
