    Loretta Lynn awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom


    Loretta Lynn has been honoured with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, described as "the nation's highest civilian honor presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the U.S., to world peace or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

    The President commented that "this coal miner's daughter gave voice to a generation, singing what no one wanted to talk about and saying what no one wanted to think about."

    Loretta has won increasing recognition for the contribution her songs made to awareness of women's issues.
    This article highlights five of her songs that raised issues that were rarely broached in songs at the time, and concludes with her recent musical connection with the present generation, on Van Lear Rose, her collaborative album with Jack White
