Margo Price lived out a lifelong dream last week when she took the stage with Loretta Lynn. During a concert at East Tennessee’s Blackberry Farm, Price and Lynn teamed up for several songs, including Lynn’s signature “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

The concert was part of the Americana Music Association’s 7th annual Americana Spring Celebration, which ran from March 30 through April 1. The event benefits the Americana Music Association.

Price posted a clip of the dream duet moment, along with a photo of the duo on stage.

“I met my hero Loretta Lynn last night and was lucky enough to sing several songs with her. It was absolutely surreal,” Price wrote on Instagram

Lynn had a No. 1 hit with “Coal Miner’s Daughter” back in 1970. The iconic song went on to inspire the rags to riches autobiography and biographical film of the same name, starring Sissy Spacek as Lynn. The song, which chronicles Lynn’s upbringing in Butcher Holler, Ky., was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

There’s no one more fitting than Margo Price to sing the song with Lynn. Price named her debut album Midwest Farmer’s Daughter in honor of her hero. Price is currently touring the U.S. as part of her Born to Ramble tour.

Loretta Lynn released her latest album, the Grammy-nominated Full Circle, last year. The record was her first album of new material since 2004’s Jack White-produced Van Lear Rose. She’ll celebrate her 85th birthday with two shows at the Ryman Auditorium on April 14 and 15.

This summer, Lynn will be the subject of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Opening Aug. 25, the exhibit will honor the life, art and music of the queen of Butcher Holler.
