‘Loretta Lynn: My Story My Words’: How, When, Where to Watch the Documentary Premiere

by Emily Morgan

Loretta Lynn fans, get your ball gowns and banjos ready, we’ve got a documentary to watch. 

Lynn’s new documentary, Loretta Lynn: My Story In My Words, is making its debut tonight on PBS on February 27. 

While it’s been 50 years since she released the hit that put her career on the map, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” the documentary will give fans a rare glimpse into her life. Fans will see never-before-seen interviews from various moments of her life and performances that add to the storytelling.

Starting from when she grew up in Butcher Holler, the documentary will show the singer’s rise to stardom over 50 years. Fans will also get a look into the making of her hits such as “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind).”

Loretta Lynn, proving she’s still as humble as she was when she began her career, thanked PBS for the documentary. 

In a post on Twitter, she has nothing but gratitude: “Thank you, PBS for putting this documentary together. I still can’t believe my life is one for any kind of fuss. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

Loretta Lynn’s Documentary Acts As Precursor To Upcoming Album

The documentary will also act as a predecessor to Lynn’s 50th album, Still Woman Enough, set to come out on March 19. 

The album, much like the documentary, is a celebration of women. It features fellow female artists such as Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Margo Price, and Tanya Tucker. 

During the ’60s, a self-taught and motivated Lynn turned Nashville on its head. She proved to be a successful songwriter who wrote about the trials and tribulations of being a southern woman, wife, and mother. 

Lynn has sold more than 45 million records, making her one of the most highly regarded musicians of all time. 

The four-time-Grammy-winner is the first woman to be named the CMA’s “Entertainer of the Year. Moreover, she’s been inducted into more halls of fame than any female recording artist in history. With that, if anyone deserves to be celebrated, it’s Loretta Lynn. 

Loretta Lynn: My Story In My Words will premierie on PBS stations on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
