"Whispering Sea" (1960)

When Jack White enlisted Lynn to open for him at a Nashville concert last year, he made a special request. He wanted her to dust off "Whispering Sea," the first song she ever wrote and the B side to "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl." Written and sung like a timeless folk tale, it has taken on new life more than 50 years after she penned it: Lynn rerecorded "Sea" as the opener of this year's Full Circle.
