Loretta Lynn quite proudly sings, “If you’re looking at me, you’re looking at country,” and she sure as all fire means every word. So do her children and her grand babies. But two members of her legacy can say that when you’re looking at them, you might see a little bit more.
Granddaughters Tayla Lynn and Emmy Rose Russell, both gifted singers themselves, recently appeared on the hit Fox TV game show “Beat Shazam” with host Jamie Foxx. If you haven’t seen the show before, contestants are given a category, and then a few bars of a song from that category are played. They then race to be the first to identify the tune by the exact title.
The first category could not have been any farther from country—disco.
Turns out Loretty’s girls are quite well versed in other formats of music. Not only did they answer fast and first, they were also the only team of the three to answer it correctly. And then, like good southern girls would do, they offered to take Jamie for coffee.
So polite. We’re sure they made Granny proud.
“Beat Shazam” is similar to the older game show “Name That Tune,” where contestants had to identify a song in as few notes as possible.
Look it up, y’all. It launched Kathie Lee Gifford’s television career.
