Honky-tonk chanteuse and entrepreneur Nikki Lane has been making the rounds on television as of late to promote her excellent third release, ‘Highway Queen.’ On a stop with a special Saturday CBS This Morning the South Carolinian performed with one of her heroes; the First Lady of Country Music, Loretta Lynn. The two are uncanny mirror images across time, country music and a couch at Lynn’s Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, ranch, with a sleeping dog between them as they perform Lynn’s Number One “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind).”
Lynn explains the pairs unique chemistry.
“I felt like we always knew each other,” Lynn says, adding that they might have met in a previous life.
In addition to singing with Lynn, Lane also performed her songs “Jackpot” and “Send the Sun.” Watch those below.
Lane is back on tour in Europe through June. She then returns to the U.S. for the Newport Folk Festival and Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival. Lynn’s new release ‘Wouldn’t It Be Great’ will be released on August 18th.
