Loretta Lynn to Receive CMT Honor

Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Loretta Lynn will receive the CMT Johnny Cash Visionary Award next month, just a few days before her 70th birthday.

The award recognizes an artist's musical vision, innovative music videos and pioneering initiatives in entertainment. It was known as the Video Visionary Award but was renamed in honor of Cash last year.

Lynn will be honored April 11 during the live broadcast of Country Music Television's 2005 Music Awards, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, from the Gaylord Entertainment Center. She turns 70 on April 14.

She won two Grammy Awards last month for her album, ``Van Lear Rose,'' produced by Jack White of the White Stripes.

The Dixie Chicks won the first Video Visionary Award in 2002. Cash won the award in 2003 and Reba McEntire was honored last year.
