Mar 21, 2011Lynn still owns the songs, but she's pleased as pie to lend them out, and they come back to her lovingly countrified even when the borrower is Hayley Williams, of Paramore and Franklin, Tennessee, who acts naturally over an acoustic guitar and should give Jack White lessons.
Nov 9, 2010Most songs here emphasize Lynn's signature feistiness, but Williams zeroes in on the deep heartache she's also adept at, choosing her 1976 hit "Somebody Somewhere (Don't Know What He's Missin' Tonight)," one of 16 singles Lynn took to No. 1. There's a full record of this soul-scorching facet of Lynn's music lurking somewhere, for somebody.
Nov 9, 2010Other Nashville all-stars-Lee Ann Womack ("I'm a Honky Tonk Girl"), Carrie Underwood ("You're Lookin' at Country"), and Reba McEntire ("If You're Not Gone Too Long")--contribute perfectly adequate performances, and Miranda Lambert plows duet partner Sheryl Crow into the ground with her saucy delivery on "Coal Miner's Daughter," which features a cameo by Miss Loretta herself. Still, most of the disc's highlights come from those outside of the country genre.
Nov 9, 2010Reverence, or at least too much of it, is often the death knell for tribute albums. If a legend's legacy looms too large, artists err on the side of homage instead of interpretation. That's the obvious problem with this salute to country icon Loretta Lynn, which cherry-picks from her 50-year career with an emphasis on songs she either wrote or co-wrote.
