Posted Tue Nov 19, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

Michael Apted's 1980 Oscar-nominated biopic of Loretta Lynn is bound for Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing 'Coal Miner's Daughter' for Blu-ray on January 7.

Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and based on the best-selling autobiography, Coal Miner's Daughter is the true story of legendary country star Loretta Lynn. In the acclaimed performance that earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress, Sissy Spacek stars as the poor Appalachian Mountains mother who rose from humble beginnings to become the "Queen of Country Music." Co-starring Tommy Lee Jones as her ambitious husband, a man who recognizes her talent and prods her into making a record, the film offers a tale of a woman's triumph in making her name in the world.

The Blu-ray/Ultraviolet Digital Copy combo will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Tommy Lee Jones Remembers Coal Miner's Daughter; Interview with Loretta Lynn and Director Michael Apted; President George Bush Sr. Salutes AFI and Coal Miner's Daughter; and Feature Commentary with Sissy Spacek and Director Michael Apted.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
