Country music veteran Loretta Lynn has marked a career milestone with the release of her 50th studio album, Still Woman Enough.
The release of Still Woman Enough last Friday also coincided with the 50th anniversary of her successful album Coal Miner’s Daughter. Coming some 61 years after starting out in music, Lynn’s new album honors not only her storied career, but the success of other women in country: Carrie Underwood, Margo Price, Reba McEntire and Tanya Tucker join Lynn on her new album across a number of songs.
“I am just so thankful to have some of my friends join me on my new album. We girl singers gotta stick together,” Lynn said in a statement earlier this year. “It’s amazing how much has happened in the 50 years since Coal Miner’s Daughter first came out and I’m extremely grateful to be given a part to play in the history of American music.”
Over Still Woman Enough’s 13 tracks, Lynn successfully interweaves classic country tunes with modern compositions. Aside from previously released single “One’s on the Way” and a new rendition of her timeless song “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” the Kentucky-born singer also offers new takes on the traditional track “I Don’t Feel at Home Anymore” and Hank William’s “I Saw the Light.”
