Loretta Lynn and Elvis Presley are two of the greatest musical artists to ever live. Presley is ranked as the second best-selling solo artist in the United States of all time, while Lynn is the most awarded female artist in country music history.
Over the course of her career, Lynn has collaborated with a number of other major stars and made lots of friendships along the way. As it turns out, her and Presley shared a friendship while he was still alive, even though they never really hung around with one another.
During an interview with Bravo TV about some of her famous friends, Lynn made a confession that no one saw coming. Before Presley passed away, the two of them had made plans to write a song together, but they never got the chance to do so.
"You know, we were gonna write together, two weeks before he died, we talked about it. We were gonna get together and write and we never got to."
Wow, what a missed opportunity that was. We wonder what kind of song Presley and Lynn would have ended up writing together? Maybe it even would have been a duet!
Since Lynn never got the chance to write a song with Presley, she's performed some of his famous songs throughout the years. One such occasion was her 1980 performance of Presley's emotional song, "In the Ghetto" which you can watch below, along with her full Bravo TV interview.
It's such a shame that Presley and Lynn never got the chance to collaborate, because that would have been one incredible song!
