Two country music icons, Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, come together to sing a medley of Loretta’s songs. And these powerful harmonies are simply too good to miss!
Two of the most well-known women of country music are Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn. Both of these ladies are front runners for the genre and have both had lifelong success as performers.
Today, Loretta is 89 years old and Dolly is 75. Their opening song was "Coal Miner's Daughter." This is a special connection for both women since they each have conquering stories of being born into financially struggling families.
Country Greats, Dolly Parton And Loretta Lynn
Dolly grew up as one of twelve kids in the great smoky mountains of Tennessee and Loretta grew up in a small shack as a daughter of a coal miner in Kentucky. Both women used their skills of songwriting and singing to share their stories and build their careers.
Both musicians have won countless Grammy awards and country music awards. They are chart-topping queens of the country genre, however, instead of keeping the stage to themselves, these artists chose to share one. Dolly helps give a tribute to all the many songs that Loretta produced by singing alongside her in this video.
The two seem to share a genuine friendship and sisterhood. Between Loretta's soulful alto voice and Dolly's saucy soprano melodies, the two powerhouses join together in an amazing performance.
The ladies sang a medley of popular songs of Loretta Lynn while Dolly made complimentary comments in between. She even humorously claimed that her mother was a huge fan of one of the songs "for obvious reasons." The friendly banter makes the entire video even more entertaining.
I love the way that Dolly honored Loretta Lynn above herself. This performance was a beautiful example of Romans 12:10, "Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves."
