Loretta Lynn : Honky Tonk Girl, If you appreciate the style and music of Loretta Lynn, you will bask in the life and music of Loretta. I consider Loretta Lynn an American Icon, therefore add Honky Tonk Girl to my collection with joy. Honky Tonk Girl is the lively and personal portrait of “The Coal Miner’s Daughter”. From impoverished Butcher Holler Loretta rose to the pinnacle of the music business singing and writing songs for women like her. The documentary follows Loretta from rural Kentucky to the clubs of the northwest, from her first appearance on The Grand Ole Opry to the 1970’s Country Music Entertainer of the Decade. Through hit after hit and unprecedented super-stardom, Loretta never changed from the sweet, innocent and spunky Honky Tonk Girl of her first record.

Loretta Lynn : Honky Tonk Girl Few performers in country music have proved as influential and iconic asLoretta Lynn. At a time when women usually took a back seat to men in Nashville,Lynnwas a voice of strength, independence, and sometimes defiance, writing and singing songs that spoke to the concerns of working-class women with unapologetic honesty. She could sing of her hardscrabble childhood (“Coal Miner’s Daughter”), deal with the realities of relationships (“Fist City,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough”), deliver proto-feminist anthems (“The Pill”), and explore mature romance (her series of duets withConway Twitty) and sound perfectly authentic at every turn.Lynn‘s voice, strong but naturalistic and matched to tough, lively honky tonk arrangements, reinforced the home truths of her songs, and her success blazed trails for other female country artists. As a member of the Grand Ol’ Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, she’s been honored by the country music establishment while still doing things her own way. She was a frequent presence on the country charts from 1960 to 1981, and even as tastes changed and her record sales faded, she continued to be a potent live attraction and a major influence on other artists. And at the age of 72,Lynnwas discovered by a new generation of music fans when alternative rock starJack White, a longtime fan, produced her 2004 album,Van Lear Rose.
