Why Not “Coal Miner’s Daughter”?

I was feeling a little down after finishing a biography of Edmund Wilson, so I dug out my old obscure country records to cheer myself up. One of the records I heard was Loretta Lynn’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” As I got wrapped up in the story, I realized, “This would make a great movie!” They make movies based on TV shows, so why not a song? I even thought of who could play Lynn: Sissy Spacek. Obviously she can act, but she’s also made a country album. Plus, she looks a lot like Lynn (see picture above). Seems like a no-brainer to me.
