Loretta Lynn, Live At The 2014 Americana Music Awards

April 08, 2015 by KELLY MCCARTNEY • It doesn't get much better than Loretta Lynn singing her life's story on the stage of Ryman Auditorium. That's the stuff of legends; the stuff on which country-music dreams have been built for more than a few decades. After accepting a Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting from Kacey Musgraves and Angaleena Presley, a decked-out Lynn launched into a seemingly effortless rendition of "Coal Miner's Daughter," sounding as spirited as ever. It was a highlight of an already unforgettable evening.
