Loretta Lynn (2003 Kennedy Center Honoree)

Loretta Lynn

Few things in life are sweeter than a real country song, and when Loretta Lynn is singing, her song is always as sweet as it rings true. Her name is synonymous with country music itself. She has sung for royalty, teamed up with Luciano Pavarotti as well as Conway Twitty, called American Presidents friends, and headlined everywhere from "The Muppet Show" to the Grand Ole Opry.

"A song delivered by Loretta," said her fellow country singer Roy Acuff, "is from the deepest part of her heart.
