New Loretta Lynn Devotional Book To Be Released Posthumously
A Song & A Prayer, a new collection of inspirational devotions co-authored by Loretta Lynn just before her passing, will be released on May 23 from Worthy Books.
Lynn’s final offering is a collection of prayers combined with song lyrics inspired by her songwriting sessions with fellow hit songwriter and co-author, ordained minister Dr. Kim McLean. McLean is a Dove award-winning singer-songwriter who has had songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Trisha Yearwood, Lee Ann Womack and others. Through A Song & A Prayer, readers of all faiths and walks of life will have the opportunity to bask in a month’s worth of spiritual encouragement from Lynn’s own resilient faith.
“Originally slated to come out in December, mom worked all summer to complete this book. It was so important to her because she had never devoted an entire book to her faith. Mom was always open about her faith but it was a deeply personal matter to her, one in which we knew at the core was the most important thing in her life. Her passing has made this project all the more special to us and we know her fans will feel the same way,” says Lynn’s daughter Patsy Lynn Russell.
“My writing sessions with Loretta were inspired by our friendship and faith,” says McLean. “She always told me we need to ‘write it the way we say it,’ and these are the things she felt were important to say. It is a capstone project, and a culmination of her wholehearted, unapologetic love of God, of people, and of life. We were similar in many ways and connected on a soul level, but her fans know that’s the only way Loretta ever connected – heart to heart. We laughed all the time when we wrote, sometimes argued, then laughed again. This book came about so naturally. Loretta said this project was special to her, and I’m honored to be her collaborator and friend. She was such an inspiration.”
