My wife and I were recently discussing how many of the icons we grew up with are gone. Names like Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Elvis and one our favorites, Johnny Carson. We then started talking about some famous folks and wondered if they were still with us...like Loretta Lynn.

Well I am happy to report she is very much alive. In fact you can get all the news on the "Coal Miners Daughter" at her great website, http://www.lorettalynn.com/50/. Hard to believe she turned 79 back in April. She looks great. And she looks great in this YouTube flashback featuring Loretta with the Tonight Show legend, the late Johnny Carson.
