If you knew Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette were hanging out in a backstage dressing room, happily harmonizing like sisters, wouldn’t you try to get in there?

Longtime CMT viewers will recognize a whole lot of faces in this clever video for “Silver Threads and Golden Needles.” The track comes from a memorable 1993 album, Honky Tonk Angels, which united three of the most celebrated women in country music history.

Clearly, all three of these legendary ladies have a keen sense of humor. For me, the scene where Lynn spots Bill Monroe is priceless, and Parton’s closing scene always makes me chuckle. Plus it’s fun just to see Wynette keeping an eye on the other two.

Even if you’re not on the backstage list, you can still take a look at Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette’s classic video, “Silver Threads and Golden Needles.”
