Tuesday Tune (Jack White Goes Country)

I have to admit that when I first heard that Jack White was slated to produce Loretta Lynn's latest album, Van Lear Rose, I was skeptical about the quality of the finished product. Then I heard Jack cover the title track on a February Peel session, and my worries lifted. The White Stripe treated the song with respect and allowed the lyrics and simple arrangement to shine, and the same could be said for the resulting album by Ms. Lynn. Enjoy "Van Lear Rose," performed by Jack White.

Thanks for that. I might have to track down the Lynn album.

You should. It's a new classic. Totally worth the effort.

Thanks for the tip... I'm partial to a bit of country, but I probably wouldn't have bought (or even heard) Van Lear Rose. Now I have it and I'm happy.
