Loretta Lynn- Wouldn't it be Great


More than 15 months after suffering a stroke in May 2017, Loretta Lynn has announced plans to release her new studio album, "Wouldn't It Be Great," on Sept. 28. The album was originally slated to drop in August 2017, but Loretta's recovery rightfully took priority.
