Loretta Lynn has re-recorded her classic 1971 song “One’s on the Way” with Margo Price.
The original version of the song, written by poet Shel Silverstein, is known for its forward-thinking and humorous lyrics, which reference the women’s liberation movement of the ’70s and the then-newly invented birth control pill. Price, who has been lauded for her outspoken and poignant songwriting, makes a perfect duet partner for Lynn.
In an accompanying behind-the-scenes video, Price also discusses Lynn’s influence on her career and country music as a whole. “Obviously, I love her voice. I love the way she sings, it’s so powerful, but it is what she’s saying and how she’s saying it,” Price said. “It was an important song at the time, and it’s still an important song. To be able to talk about birth control and women’s rights in country music—it was legendary.”
The remake of “One’s on the Way” will appear on Lynn’s upcoming 50th solo album Still Woman Enough, due out March 19. It will also feature collaborations with Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood and Tanya Tucker. Lynn announced the record in January with a new rendition of her signature song “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
