For a woman who has been the reigning Queen of Country Music for almost 60 years, her latest accomplishment seems fitting.
Loretta Lynn released her first album since 2004's Van Lear Rose on March 4th and it has been a staple on the charts since. Titled Full Circle, the album is a representation of her long, illustrious career in country music.
The album is produced by her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, and Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash's son, John Carter Cash. It features 13 tracks that take you on the journey of her life, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a young girl to new versions of her classics, to songs written specifically for this project.
Full Circle features "Lay Me Down", a duet with Willie Nelson, and "Everything It Takes", a duet with Elvis Costello. At 83 years old, Lynn doesn't skip a beat and proves that she keeps getting better with age.
On March 18th, Billboard announced that Full Circle debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 chart, making it her highest charting album ever.
Van Lear Rose debuted and peaked at No. 24 and is Lynn's only other album to hit the top 40 on the all-genre list.
Congratulations to Loretta Lynn on a well-deserved accolade.
