Loretta Lynn had been a grandmother for over ten years when Jack White was born, so it's fair to ask exactly what this Johnny-come-lately from The White Stripes has to offer one of the grande dames of American music. In pairing a country legend with a hip producer, Interscope Records was clearly hoping to capture the magic of the Johnny Cash/Rick Rubin sessions, and there are quite a few fine moments on Van Lear Rose. But White's production and guitar work feel like filigree on Lynn's already perfected art.
