Looks like talent definitely runs in Loretta Lynn's family!
For Loretta's 50th Grand Ole Opry Anniversary, her sister covered one of Loretta's greatest hits, "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)". Her sister, Crystal Gayle, walked on stage and immediately told everyone how much she loved her sister! She then followed up with a little joke, saying, "When I first started, Loretta told me to quit singing her songs. She told me we had one Loretta Lynn, we didn't need another." Loretta giggled in the crowd, and her sister began the cover.
Crystal sang the song beautifully, and it was clear that Loretta was impressed!
"Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)" was released in 1967 from Loretta's album of the same name, Don't Come Home A Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind). The song was Loretta's first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, and of course, became one of her best-known songs!
Check out the videos below to see both Crystal's cover, and Loretta's original version!
