This is a video you do not want to miss. Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter sings the iconic “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” Tayla Lynn brightens up anyone’s day with her big smile and twangy voice. She is not only the spitting image of her grandmother Loretta, but she sings just like her too.
This proud-to-be-American band performs in front of the US flag and a red convertible. The group plays guitar, piano, and fiddle as Tayla sings. There is so much joy from the band as they honor Tayla’s grandmother with this tribute.
This video makes me think about legacy. Loretta is leaving her mark on the world and influencing the lives of her family members along the way. Loretta was proud of her history coming from a coal mining family. She was bold enough to share her childhood with the world through music. Now, this hit song is being performed many years later by her very own granddaughter. It does not get much sweeter than this. Tayla not only knows her family history, but she can sing a song about it that her grandmother penned.
