Loretta Lynn Opens Up About Her Past in PBS Documentary “Still a Mountain Girl”

Loretta Lynn is the subject of a revealing new documentary on PBS premiering today (March 4)—the same day her brand-new album, Full Circle, comes out.

Called American Masters—Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl, the two-hour program is part of a series that has previously uncovered the stories of legends like B.B. King and will next focus on Willie Nelson.

Featuring wide-ranging interviews with Loretta, her children and artists like Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert, viewers will get a glimpse of Loretta’s journey from poverty in Butcher Holler, Ky., all the way to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Along the way, they’ll be treated to never-before-seen home movies, hear personal stories of triumph and tragedy and watch as she records her new music with producer John Carter Cash at the Cash Cabin Studio.

American Masters—Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl premieres March 4 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS.
