Country queen Loretta Lynn will receive Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association's Honors and Awards show.
The award ceremony will take place on September 17 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
This accolade will honor the country queen's songwriting, especially since she has penned such classic hits as her autobiographical "Coal Miner's Daughter," as well as "One's On The Way," "Fist City" and "Don't Come Home A Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)."
Her critically-acclaimed studio album Van Lear Rose was produced by Jack White from the rock band, The White Stripes, and he has dubbed Lynn as "the most important female singer-songwriter of the 20th century."
In 2005, the album went on to win two Grammy awards for "Best Country Album" and "Best Country Collaboration with Vocals" for "Portland, Oregon."
As Digital Journal previously reported, Lynn was one of 16 recipients of the prestigious "Presidential Medal of Freedom" in December of 2013.
She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in 1988.
