"Blue Kentucky Girl"
A classic performance by the original "coal miner's daughter," Loretta Lynn ( a different performance of hers is here). The song was revitalized by Emmylou Harris in 1979, when she won a Grammy for the album with this title (which I still have in vinyl); a video of a very young Emmylou Harris singing this song is posted here, but embedding has been diabled.
Posted to celebrate the news that a Kentucky girl is moving up a corporate ladder.
