Loretta Lynn: "Take Your Gun and Go, John"

While perhaps not bound for #1 Hype Machine blog glory - if Loretta Lynn sings a song about the Civil War, I'm probably going to post it. While we haven't had new music from the ageless country star since her instant-classic collaboration with Jack White 'Van Lear Rose' it's great to hear Loretta singing over some front porch banjo and fiddle. Details from Rolling Stone:
This fall, ATO Records will release a two-disc compilation of songs from the Civil War called Divided and United that will feature contributions from Old Crow Medicine Show, A.A. Bondy, Taj Mahal, T. Bone Burnett, Steve Earle, Dolly Parton and more.
