“Oh heavens, I never thought of anything like this when I was a kid,” says Kentucky native Lynn, 83, in the documentary. “Growing up in Butcher Hollow, that’s where you’ll stay.

“When I started singing, why I looked at the song book and thought, ‘Well heck, this is easy,'” she says. “So I threw the song book down and wrote my own songs.”

Lambert, an avid fan, sums up the key to Lynn’s superstardom: “Loretta always just said exactly what she was going through right then in her music,” she says. “That’s why it resonates with us.”

To see other stars sing Lynn’s praises, catch American Masters – Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl, debuting Friday, March 4 at 9 p.m. on PBS.
