A few months ago we learned that Loretta Lynn would be invited to the White House to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Now, the big moment has arrived!

Loretta Lynn posted these pictures on Facebook as she arrived at the White House for the big honor. Congratulations to 'The Coal Miner's Daughter!' Remember that you can hear Loretta Lynn and more Classic Country Music every Sunday Morning, 6-9am eastern, on 1077/GNA and on-line at www.wgna.com.

According to GAC, Loretta Lynn will be among the sixteen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Nation’s highest civilian honor presented to those who have made “especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interest of the United States, to world peace or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”
