Last.fm Trends: Loretta Lynn Tackles Country Greats
Find out how her country classics are doing now, and what’s really top of her charts.
Lynn’s top tracks are, for the most part, a run down of the best loved songs from 2004′s Van Lear Rose.
Produced by Jack White, the album was lauded as a perfect tribute to her career to date, touching on the poignant, elegant and occasionally political songs she made a name for herself with.
Of the songs she released in 1972, only “Rated X” – a song infamously banned from the airwaves – breaks her top 50 tracks. The most popular of her classic hits – “Coal Miner’s Daughter” – is enjoying a resurgence, with hundreds of listeners turning to it every week.
For a lady as groundbreaking and occasionally controversial as Lynn, it probably suits her to know that the newer cuts have captured the ears of her fans around the world today.
