Eilen Jewell will perform a rare small venue set as Butcher Holler.

Loretta Lynn's "Fist City" is one of the best burns ever penned, wrapped in the innocuous crocheted shawl of a late-'60s country ditty.

"You've been makin' your brags around town / that you've been a lovin' my man," Lynn lilts. "But the man I love, when he picks up trash / he puts it in a garbage can."

And just like the lovely Lynn can diss a bitch with a smile on her face and not a hair out of place, contemporary country doll Eilen Jewell also knows how to channel that sweetly snarling spirit. In 2010, Jewell released an entire album of Lynn covers under the name Butcher Holler.

In addition to a less venomous but still fantastic cover of "Fist City," Jewell also imbues Lynn classics like "Deep As Your Pocket" and "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)" with her signature butter-smooth country sound.

You can catch Jewell and her band performing as Butcher Holler at a rare small venue, Pengilly's Saloon, Friday, Nov. 2.
