The country icon shared her thoughts on the genre's current state on a recent episode of Martina McBride's Vocal Point podcast.
Lynn said, “They’ve already let it [die]. I think it’s dead.
"I think it’s a shame. I think it’s a shame to let a type of music die. I don’t care what any kind of music it is -- rock, country, whatever. I think it’s a shame to let it die, and I’m here to start feeding it."
When McBride noted that Lynn seemed “mad” about it, Lynn replied: “Yeah. I’m getting mad about it. I am. Because it’s ridiculous.”
“I’m not happy at all. I think that they’re completely losing it. And I think that’s a sad situation because we should never let country music die. I think that every type of music should be saved, and country is one of the greatest. It’s been around, as far as I’m concerned, longer than any of it.”
Later in the podcast, Lynn answered McBride’s question about what she is “the most proud of” in her life.
“My kids. I couldn’t be more proud of my kids. I love my kids so much. That’s my whole life. My life is my kids, and then my music.”
