Loretta Lynn, one of the bona fide original Queens of Country, has had one of the most prolific careers in country music. From humble beginnings as a coal miner's daughter, the legendary Lynn went on to be a multiple Grammy recipient, CMA winner and Country Music Hall of Fame inductee. Never one to shy away from controversy, Lynn was one of the first artists to take on such taboo issues as birth control, the Vietnam War and divorce. She has collaborated with some of the biggest names in rock and country, among them Conway Twitty, Ernest Tubb and Jack White.

And on Sept. 6, the inimitable Lynn will be sharing a stage with Jessica Simpson. That's right—Jessica "is tuna chicken?" Simpson. The very same Jessica Simpson that has found success with countless pop hits, among them "I Think I'm in Love with You." Here's a sample of the lyrics:

Just the other night, baby

I saw you hangin'

You were with your crew I was with mine too.

You took me by surprise

When you turned and looked me in my eyes

Boy you really blow my mind.

Beautiful. Simpson's appearance at the Opry is presumably in support of her debut country album, Do You Know, scheduled for release on Sept. 9. You can even enter to win a free trip to the show, complete with VIP seats and a ride on a Delta River Flatboat in the Opryland hotel via Simpson's website. (Contest ends the 31st.) And you thought the apocalypse wasn't swiftly approaching.
