Chronicles by Loretta Lynn
Released: Mar 2006
Label: MCA Nashville
This whopping three-disc set gives an extensive overview of the influential singer's career, covering her earliest singles, '70s dominance and country gospel material. As talented a singer as Lynn is, it's the feminist themes of her songs, which prompted conservatives to essentially boycott her in the beginning, that set her apart. "The Pill" (about birth control), "One's on the Way" (about frequent pregnancy) and "Rated 'X'" (about the hypocrisy of society and pitfalls of being a woman) all cemented her status as a controversial, outspoken and incalculably important country artist.
