Loretta Lynn, Jack White Plan Two More LPs, Tour

Hot on the heels of her universally acclaimed Van Lear Rose LP, subversive country legend Loretta Lynn has announced plans to collaborate with White Stripes axe-grinder Jack White on two more full-length records for Interscope. Speaking last week to The New York Times, Lynn revealed, “I’ve got two more [albums] 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.”

Lynn is presently on the road, playing modest gigs– mostly at casinos– nationwide, but she told the paper that she will also embark on another tour with White and the Van Lear Rose backing band, which she named The Do-Whaters, possibly playing rock venues: “Me and Jack are going to do a tour with the Do-Whaters, the boys that played on the album. I’ll take my band out, too, so it won’t be no big deal.” When she might find time for that tour remains to be seen, however, since her current itinerary has her booked fairly solid through the end of the year.
