Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow Lend Their Voices to Loretta Lynn’s ‘Daughter’

Columbia Records

Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow join Loretta Lynn on the first release from ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter, A Tribute to Loretta Lynn.’ The talented trio’s version of ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter‘ is now available on iTunes, although the album won’t be released until November 9.

“I love Miranda and Sheryl, and I really felt they both brought something different singing style wise to this song,” Loretta tells Billboard. “Miranda is so country and has a sassiness to her that you can hear as soon as she sings her first line ‘my daddy worked all night in the Van Lear coal mine.’ Sheryl adds such a soulfulness to her lines. I loved both. I am so happy and proud they did the song with me.”

And they’re going to do the song again, this time without Loretta but in tribute to her, as Sheryl and Miranda are set to sing ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ on next month’s CMA Awards, in a tribute to the country icon’s 50 years in the music business.

All of the guest artists on the upcoming album were hand picked by Loretta and include Steve Earle, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Martina McBride, Allison Moorer, Paramore, Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, the White Stripes, Lucinda Williams, Gretchen Wilson and Lee Ann Womack.

“I am so happy that these singers wanted to do this record. I love ’em all, and it was so great to hear all the different ways they did my hits,” Loretta says, referring to how each artist recorded with their own choice of producer and musicians. “I hope people like it as much as I do and we sell a bunch of records!!”
