Loretta Lynn

While George Strait and George Jones recently garnered headlines for their announcements that they would be retiring from the road soon, Loretta Lynn keeps rolling. Last year, the 80-year-old daughter of a coal miner told the Observer that the secret to an artist's longevity is "how hard they're willing to work." As is the case with only a small number of artistic geniuses, Lynn continues to win new generations of fans thanks to her willingness to keep working and to keep performing. Perhaps this is selfish of us, but here's hoping that a retirement announcement from Lynn isn't coming anytime soon.
