Loretta Lynn 

Van Lear Rose


Loretta Lynn

The wonder here is not just that producer/guitarist Jack White resurrects Loretta Lynn with rock, but that the 69-year-old coal miner’s daughter is ready with a dozen sharp new songs. She is back defending hubby from hussies and liquor with “Family Tree” and “Mrs. Leroy Brown.” A brief autobiography and tale about “mommy” and her “Little Red Shoes” raises the sweet smell of those Kentucky hills. Not just her wits but all rough edges are intact in a pairing every bit as inspired as Cash/Rubin.
