Today, the 83-year-old country music eminence Loretta Lynn releases Full Circle, her first studio album since 2004’s Jack White-produced Van Lear Rose. And last night, she brought her regal presence to The Tonight Show to sing “Everything It Takes,” a song that features Elvis Costello in its on-record version. Singing in front of her band, Lynn brought a casual charm, the sort of thing that served her well for decades on Nashville variety shows and Southern radio broadcasts. She knows what she’s doing. Watch the performance below.
Full Circle is out now on Legacy.
