LORETTA LYNN HONORED BY CMT

During the live telecast of the CMT 2005 Music Awards, "Coal Miner's Daughter" Loretta Lynn will be bestowed with the Johnny Cash Visionary Award. The award-originally called the Video Visionary Award, was permanently renamed in honor of the Man in Black last year. Previous winners of the award include the Dixie Chicks in 2002, Johnny in 2003, and Reba McEntire in 2004. The award recognizes an artist's extraordinary musical vision, innovative and groundbreaking music videos, and pioneering initiatives in entertainment. No doubt Loretta's recent clip for her song "Portland Oregon," with her producer/duet partner Jack White, helped influence CMT's choice. The CMT 2005 Music Awards airs April 11 at 8 p.m. Eastern.
