    Comments about PBS American Masters: Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl DVD:

    A fascinating look into the life and family of the Queen of Country, Miss Loretta Lynn.

    This incredibly insightful and heartfelt documentary made me fall in love with the Coal Miner's Daughter. I bet you will too.

    From her earliest days in Butcher Holler to modern day collaborations with Jack White and John Carter Cash, this film reveals an amazingly complicated and talented woman who has dedicated her entire life to pleasing others in a most spectacular way. Somehow she balances an incredible work schedule with her deep and infectious love for family, friends, and fans.

    In an incredibly poignant moment, members of a tour group spontaneously break in to 'Coal Miner's Daughter' as Loretta is being interviewed for this production. The result is a tender and teary-eyed once in a lifetime exchange between her fans and their Queen. Loretta's reaction is priceless and quite revealing of her deep love of people.

    Her wonderfully witty sense of humor and playfulness are not only fun to watch, but contrast what has been a life dotted with moments of hardship and deep personal loss and pain.

    In very candid interviews with family and friends, we get a glimpse into a fascinating life, and a real sense for the admiration, love, and respect of the folks who mean everything to Loretta.

    Her achievements and awards are too numerous to mention, but include the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    Loretta Lynn truly is an American Master and yet she's still a mountain girl through and through!

    Thank you Loretta, and thank you PBS! ;-)

    Note: Loretta recently suffered a stroke, and all of us who have reaped the rewards of her life's work should keep Miss Lynn and her family in our thoughts and prayers. We love you Loretta!

    I originally watched this program on MPT and wanted to have it....I had it on dvr but wanted the dvd as i sometime have the misfortune of erasing programs that I want to keep in order to save space....This is just one of the programs that I have discovered on PBS...and even though I have the Ballykissangel dvd,..keep showing it....

    I really enjoyed this program!! My mother is really big into Country/Gospel music and she wanted to see the program broadcast on her PBS station out of Atlanta,Ga. They never showed the program,so she did not get to see it. Will it be rebroadcast? Thanks so much!!

    Absolutely wonderful. It truly doesn't get any better than the Coal Miner's Daughter. The one and only Queen of country music. Great video. Great lady.
