Jack White Welcomes Long-Term Commitment With Loretta Lynn





Country legend Loretta Lynn and White Stripes frontman Jack White had such a good time working together on Lynn's latest album that the two have agreed to keep their partnership intact for another two albums. Lynn said of her decision to have White produce her most recent release, Van Lear Rose, "It's not a gimmick. I've got two more in mind, and Jack and I are going to do 'em together. When I'm on the road, I say to my fans: 'How many of you know The White Stripes?' And they applaud. Country people know him." The two clearly have a incredible about of respect for one another. In talking about whether his work with Lynn will confuse White Stripes fans, Launch quotes White as saying, "As they grow older, they realize that all music dates back to the blues, and all music, whether it's punk or New Wave or rock and roll or whatever it is, it's all leading back to the blues. And country is just another aspect of that. It's just another Southern take on that folk style, just as important and just as valid."


Lynn and White are not going to confine their relationship only to the solitude of a recording either. Nothing is official, but the pair do plan to tour together with the Do Whaters, a band who played on Van Lear Rose, at some point in the future. Think Meg is jealous?
