Loretta Lynn Tribute - Coal Miner's DaughterThe 2011 ACM Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country music concert ended with a tribute to Loretta Lynn by the other women being honored during the event: Martina McBride, Reba, Miranda Lambert, The Judds, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Nettles, performing Coal Miner’s Daughter.

Loretta Lynn couldn’t attend the event live because of recent knee surgery but the other women did a great job on the tribute to her. The show originally took place on April 3, 2011 in Las Vegas and was aired Friday April 22, 2011 on CBS for television viewers. (Image by Ethan Miller – Getty Images)


  1. What was the new band that Miranda Lambert is in? Missed the beginning but really loved the song they sang.

    • Misty, It was Miranda and her new band, Pistol Annies which includes herself, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe. I’ll try to locate and post the video tomorrow.

  2. Awesome tribute but did they forget that Carrie was up there too? Why didn’t she get to sing at all?

    • Agree…wonderful tribute (Reba, Martina, Carrie are all faves), but the snub to Carrie was once again blatantly obvious, as when she wasn’t nominated this year for “Entertainer of the Year”.

    • I was thinking the same thing, Ingrid. I watched it twice in case I missed Carrie.

  3. It was a very nice tribute, but like the others that have commented, I agree it was VERY obvious that she was not included. At first I thought maybe she was have a slight case of laryngitis. But she sang at her tribute. What was wrong with these people. I always thought that country singers were among the most down to earth and genuwin people, I guess I was wrong. Not sure whose deceision it was to exclude her but it was definitely the wrong one. She deserves it just as much as any of the other women (if not more!) up on that stage.

  4. I was enjoying this tribute to Loretta but kept waiting for Carrie Underwood to sing. What happened? It was not right to leave Carrie just standing there but let some of the others sing twice. Was going to share this on Facebook but not now.

    • I would like to think that if Carrie wanted to sing during the song, she’s got enough pull to have made it happen. I think that she chose not to have any verse’s in the song purposely, maybe to take a break from singing her lungs out on the previous song with Vince Gill.

  5. I believe that is was intentional, jealousy & envy are in every genre of music. It looked like some of the smiles were forced while Carrie was singing… *shrugs* does anyone know where I can get a copy of Carrie & Vince’s tribute? Was there an album released for the music from this event?

    I read somewhere that Reba got carried away and sung Carrie’s part as well. You can see in the end, Winona Judd whispers something to Carrie and she just laugh it off. Maybe out of respect for Reba, she just let her sung the part that supposed to be hers. I read somewhere as well that Carrie tried and raised the microphone to sing…. twice..

  7. Is there a recording somewhere to be had of Carrie & Vince’s “How Great Thou
