Sorry, America. But Loretta Lynn isn't up for consideration to become the nation's new Attorney General. But USA Today says the similarity between the country legend's name and the woman who has been nominated sparked a little bit of confusion and a flurry of Twitter activity late last week.

According to Twitter, the Country Music Hall of Famer would have been a popular choice for the position!

So who really IS Attorney General? On Saturday, President Obama officially named Loretta Lynch as his pick to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder. 

Will the REAL Attorney General please stand up?!

Loretta Lynn IS returning to the spotlight -- but not in a political capacity. She just announced a new label deal with Legacy Recordings, which is slated to release her new album sometime next year.
