Loretta Lynn‘s life is being explored in the documentary Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl on PBS. The legendary singer-songwriter recalls her collaborations with Conway Twitty in the the above clip, while Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood recall their memories of listening to the country collaboration.
“When these two voices hit, it creates this dimension that you can’t get singular without one without the other,” Brooks said.
“And that’s why I’ve always enjoyed singing with Garth for the last 25 years. There’s an energy there that’s created together that isn’t separate,” Trisha adds. “It doesn’t take anything away from the singular artist, but it’s something different. There’s an energy there. I think that’s why everybody thought Loretta and Conway were married or at least having an affair because it was such a connection and it just worked hit after hit after hit.”
At the end of the clip, you can hear Brooks and Yearwood trade lines to the Lynn & Twitty hit “After the Fire is Gone.”
