Loretta Lynn is one of the four talented musicians who will be honored with an award at the Americana Music Association’s Honors & Awards Show. Lynn is set to receive a lifetime achievement award.

The 2014 Americana Music Association’s Honors & Awards Show will take place Sept. 17 at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, aka the “Mother Church of country Music.” The 82-year-old is receiving the award for her contributions as a songwriter, not a singer. Lynn penned several songs that are important to country music, including ‘Fist City,’ ‘Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)’ and, of course, one of her most popular, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter.’

It isn’t just members of the country music world who appreciate the important things Lynn has done for music. She’s also gotten a lot of recognition from Jack White, who thinks she’s one of the leading singer-songwriters of the 20th century. Lynn has won Grammy awards for her work with White, including ‘Van Lear Rose,’ which he produced.

The country legend will receive the award on the same night as other important musicians Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal and Flaco Jimenez.
