Loretta Picks Rockers for Tribute


A major country record label told Loretta Lynn she could pick any artist she wanted for a tribute album to celebrate her 50th anniversary in the biz.

And yes, some country giants are in there, including Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood.

But, according to a list released this morning (Sept. 2), Loretta also picked some rock and alternative acts to be on Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn, which is coming out Nov. 9.

Those include Kid Rock, pop-punksters Paramore, Sheryl Crow and The White Stripes, which includes lead singer Jack White, who produced Loretta’s latest album.

Others on Loretta’s tribute album: Steve Earle, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Allison Moorer, Lucinda Williams, Gretchen Wilson and Lee Ann Womack.
