TK # 21 - Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose (2004)

Featuring the most unlikely, intriguing May-December relationship since Harold and Maude, Jack White helps provide Loretta Lynn with the perfect career capstone in Van Lear Rose. Her ferocious talent undimmed at 70, Loretta Lynn unleashes an album full of poignant, self-penned songs that sound like nothing less than the best country record of the decade. From the heartbreakingly autobiographical “Miss Being Mrs.” to the rousing, boozy duet “Portland, Oregon”, Van Lear Rose is a complete triumph.
