At the 2023 Grammys, Kacey Musgraves approached the stage to open an extended In Memoriam segment with a mournful acoustic rendition of a Loretta Lynn song, plucking Lynn’s guitar.

In memory of the famous country singer-songwriter, who passed away in October at the age of 90, Musgraves sang “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” As several figures from the music industry, including Pharaoh Sanders, Jeff Beck,  and Mo Ostin, flashed onscreen throughout the piece, a bouquet of roses was at Musgraves’ feet.

Six decades of Loretta Lynn’s career saw the release of numerous gold records. She had a tonne of successes, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,”  “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind”), “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl,” “Fist City,” and “One’s on the Way.”  She served as the inspiration for the Coal Miner’s Daughter( a 1980’s musical film ).

For her revolutionary work in country music, Lynn garnered numerous accolades and awards, including recognition from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association as a solo performer and duo, respectively. She had 18 Grammy Award nominations and took home three of them.

When it got released in 1970,  “Coal Miner’s Daughter” by Loretta Lynn quickly rose to the top of the Hot Country Songs chart of the U.S.  Billboard, becoming one of her defining songs.

At the Grammy’s in 2010, Lynn received the lifetime achievement award. Nine years later, Golden Hour,  the third album by Kacey  Musgraves,  won the Grammy for album of the year.

Lynn was the only 1970s  female ACM Artist of the Decade and the most decorated female country recording artist as of 2022. Eleven top albums and 24 No. One single got achieved by Lynn.

After having a stroke in 2017 and breaking her hip in 2018, she decided to stop touring after 57 years on the road.

Sheryl Crow and Quavo also Honor musical legends at the Grammy awards stage

With performances by Sheryl Crow, Kacey Musgraves,  Bonnie Raitt,  Quavo, and Mick Fleetwood, the 2023 Grammy Awards’ moving In Memoriam segment paid tribute to the lives and careers lost in the music industry over the previous year.

The tribute’s host, Trevor Noah, acknowledged the significance of how music can bring people together despite their differences and the long-standing contributions of Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin to hip-hop. Country, R&B, and even gospel were incorporated into rock and roll by Black and White youth who rejected segregation in the 1950s.

A young Black rapper from Queens and a white Jewish student in his NYU dorm collaborated to create some of the finest hip-hop of all time in the 1980s. Because they were distinct, they created a tremendous new sound together, according to Trevor Noah.

With the help of the worship band Maverick City Music, Quavo gave an emotional rendition of “Without You” in honor of his nephew and fellow Migos rapper Takeoff.

Just two months after Takeoff, 28, was murdered and killed in November, the rapper dropped the song “Without You” last month. Following the performance, Quavo raised the chain from Takeoff to the sky. Maverick City Music also gets nominated for four categories at this year’s presentation.

Fleetwood, Crow, and Raitt finished the section by singing “Songbird,” one of the four songs on Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours that Christine McVie wrote exclusively. McVie passed away in November.

While Fleetwood performed on a hand drum, Crow played the piano. Additionally, McVie received a Grammy posthumously for Vince Mendoza’s “Songbird (Orchestral Version)” for outstanding arrangement, instruments, and vocals.

Additionally honored were Olivia Newton-John,  David Crosby, Lisa Marie Presley, Terry Hall,  Jeff Beck,  Anita Pointer,  Irene Cara, Yukihiro Takahashi, Keith Levene of The Clash, Coolio, Ian MacDonald of King Crimson, and Andrew Fletcher of Depeche Mode.
