Loretta Lynn actually lived the country music myth, rising out of Appalachian poverty to score 16 number one hits on the country charts, but she was no big-haired, groomed puppet, and wrote increasingly personal songs that also meant she’s had more songs banned on country radio than any other artist in the history of the genre. This brief ten-song set only sketches in the barest outlines of Lynn's career. One of her most famous hits, 1970’s autobiographical “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” is here, but there’s really so much more to the story. This will get you started, though.
"One's On The Way" was a huge hit, long before we ever heard "Coal Miner's Daughter" (when the movie came out). After those two, only "You're Looking At Country" rings a bell, but I see where several songs show up in later collections so credit is given. For the itunes reviewer to miss the best song makes me wonder who's doing it.
