On August 8, 2013 President Obama announced that Loretta Lynn would be among this year's recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
The award is America's highest civilian honor, presented to individuals who have made contributions to the security or national interest of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
The medals will be given out in a White House ceremony later this year.
