Jack White Does Loretta Lynn


Record Store Day might have been this past Saturday, but that doesn’t mean that the fun of finding cool new music is over.

Yesterday, Record Store Day Ambassador, Jack White’s contribution had made its way to the internet. The White Stripes frontman released a cover of Loretta Lynn’s 1970 country hit song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” It might not be that much of a stretch that White chose to cover Lynn since he talks about how much he admires her and even helped produce her 2004 album, Van Lear Rose. 

On his Third Man blog, the frontman notes that he covered the song “so you can hear the warm analog fidelity that radiates out of this booth,” which will “soon be a permanent fixture in [Third Man’s] Novelties Lounge.”

Who’s ready to go visit Third Man Records in Nashville? I’m down.
