Coal Miner's Daughter
Friday, December 03, 2010
Every year the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress selects 25 recordings to be preserved for all time. One song chosen this year is Loretta Lynn’s 1970 hit “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” which tells the story of growing up poor in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. Lynn, Nashville veteran Harold Ray Bradley, and Jack White of The White Stripes explain what makes the song a classic. Produced by Ben Manilla and Devon Strolovitch for Media Mechanics.
