Jack White laid down a version of Loretta Lynn's classic country song 'Coal Miner's Daughter' in the Third Man Records recording booth during Record Store Day.

Scroll down to listen the track, which was recorded in Nashville as part of the global Record Store Day celebrations over the weekend. Neil Young also recorded a song in the booth – as seen via the Third Man Instagram account, pictured below - however, details of his track have not yet been released.

The 1947 Voice-o-Graph is the only public vinyl record recording booth in the world. 111 seconds of audio can be recorded in the booth and the audio is cut to a six-inch phonograph disc.

A host of fans queued at the Third Man Records store in Nashville to use the booth during the weekend. The Third Man blog says:

"Whether it was a marriage proposal, folk song, last will and testament, poem, one act play, a Sir-Mix-a-Lot cover or birthday greetings, accompanied by everything from a vintage 1920's Gibson mandolin, a boombox or an iPhone, every last recording from the booth was inspired and fulfilling."
