As always, Loretta Lynn has blown us away with her Grand Ole Opry performance of the classic, "Coal Miner's Daughter".
The autobiographical song was released in 1970 from Loretta's album of the same name, Coal Miner's Daughter. The real-life tune was a major success for Loretta, reaching the top of both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, and the Canadian RPM Country Chart. Amazing! The song was so successful, that it eventually lead to the making of the 1976 autobiography of Loretta's life, Coal Miner's Daughter: The Autobiography, and the 1980 biographical movie, Coal Miner's Daughter.
The song left a huge mark on the music industry, making it's way to the #185 spot on the RIAA's list of Songs of the Century, and also holds the #13 spot on the CMT's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.
In the song, Loretta tells the story of her childhood, and growing up as the daughter of a coal miner. She said that no matter what hours her father was working or how much money they had, he always made sure to bring love into his home and care for his eight children. Loretta explains the hardships of growing up on a coal miner's salary, but in the end, she returns home and says her memories will live on.
