NASHVILLE, April 23 (UPI) -- Music legend Loretta Lynn has said The White Stripes' Jack White reminds her of one of country music's most famous producers.

"I see a lot of (the late legendary country producer) Owen Bradley in this young feller," Lynn said of rocker White, who produced Lynn's new CD, "Van Lear Rose."

White escorted Lynn Thursday to the country singer's first record release party, a celebrity laden event held at the classy Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tenn., The Tennessean reported Friday.

While Lynn compared White to Bradley, who produced most country hitmakers from the 1960s and 1970s, including Lynn, Conway Twitty, Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline and Brenda Lee, White expressed his own admiration.

"I've recorded tons of bands, and she's the best voice I've ever heard in person," White said about Lynn. "She can sing the daisies out of the ground."

Lynn's manager, Nancy Russell, first put the unlikely friends together after Russell learned White had dedicated The White Stripes' first album to the country singer.
