Loretta Lynn Memoir To Be Re-Issued In September
June 24, 2010 at 6:55 AM (PT)
The memoirs of Country great LORETTA LYNN will be re-issued this SEPTEMBER by VINTAGE BOOKS, a division of RANDOM HOUSE. “LORETTA LYNN: Coal Miner’s Daughter” tells the story of her early life in BUTCHER HOLLER, KY and her rise to fame. “Coal Miner’s Daughter” is also the title of one of her biggest hit songs and the title of a film about her life, starring SISSY SPACEK, who won an ACADEMY AWARD for her role as LORETTA.
RANDOM HOUSE AUDIO will simultaneously release the audio edition of the book on CD and via digital download, with SPACEK narrating. The book will also be available for the first time as an e-book. The memoir has been out of print since 1998. This is the 30th anniversary of the movie release and the 50th anniversary of LORETTA’s first single release.
LYNN writes in a new forward in the book, "I can hardly believe that it’s over 34 years since ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ was first published. It’s something to look back after more than 30 years, and it made me think about all my old friends and family, all the good times and not so good times. I hope you enjoy ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ all over again. Or if you’re coming to it for the first time."
