Screengrab via PBS

Country superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood discussed their love of Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty‘s legendary duet, “After The Fire is Gone,” for a new PBS documentary.

American Masters – Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl is set to air March 4 on PBS to coincide with the released of her highly-anticipated new album, Full Circle

The new documentary features interview footage with Lynn and some of the biggest names in country music. In this new clip from the special, Lynn openly discusses how her husband, Oliver “Doolittle” Lynn insisted that “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” would become a big hit for she and Twitty. Although they didn’t know at the time, the single would spark a series of chart-topping duets from the pair over the next few years.

The 83-year-old then shot down the rumors that have followed her for decades about a romantic relationship between the two, noting Twitty’s close and longtime friendship with her husband. Brooks and Yearwood also appear to elaborate on the award-winning duo’s incredible musical relationship before sharing a short  a cappella performance of Lynn and Twitty’s 1973 hit.
