The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will host a new exhibit called Loretta Lynn: Blue Kentucky Girl, beginning on August 25th. The display will include artifacts from the 85-year-old singer's career spanning more than five decades, including the original handwritten lyrics for her chart-topping 1970 hit, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” a 1956 Gibson J-50 guitar given to her in 1961 by her husband Doolittle “Mooney” Lynn, the American DR-332 ribbon microphone she used at her first recording session at Western Recorders Studio in Los Angeles in 1960, and the 1956 Singer sewing machine she used to make her own stage clothes early in her career.

Loretta continues to recover from a stroke she suffered in May.
