Loretta is the Queen of Country and a Coal Miner's Daughter. More than 50 studio albums into her career, Loretta has returned with Full Circle, a collection of songs that she sang as a child but had never recorded and an update on the first song that she ever wrote, "Whispering Sea." She has also brought along a few friends, including Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello and John Carter Cash. In a Canadian radio interview, special toThe Strombo Show, Lynn explores her storied collaborations, integral relationship with Vancouver and reflects upon her legacy.
