Brynlee isn’t just one of Loretta Lynn‘s biggest fans, she also imitates the iconic singer when she performs! Here, Brynlee sings the classic “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in a long white dress while a live Loretta Lynn video plays behind her.
The video on the TV screen introduces the country music legend, which is Brynlee’s cue. She walks from beside the TV to in front of it to pick up her light blue microphone. Right on time, she begins to sing the lyrics, “Well I was born the coal miner’s daughter in a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler.” She mimics every aspect of Lynn, from her hair and gown to her vocal inflections. It’s like looking back in time.
Brynlee’s voice gets quieter on the lyrics she can’t quite remember, but when she gets to a part she has down pat, she sings it loud and proud! She sings the chorus loudest of all, shimmying in her white lace dress. Even though she has the video going in the background, she doesn’t look at it for assistance. Instead, she uses it to keep the beat and remember where she is in the song.
