Loretta Lynn Brings House down at Her Own Party
There's a reason that Loretta Lynn was the first female in country music to earn the big honor of Entertainer of the Year. It's simply because she's a great entertainer.
The year was 1973 when she received the much coveted award and set the mark for all other female artists in the years to come. Seven years later, a movie was made of her life.
And today, the lady still has it. Loretta brought down the house at her own birthday bash officially titled: "Loretta Lynn: An All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert." The tribute show in Nashville Monday night (4/1) brought out stars like Garth Brooks, George Strait, Darius Rucker, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, and more, performing mostly Lynn’s songs.
It was uncertain if Lynn was going to perform at the event, due to her health. At the end, her sister Crystal Gayle helped the First Lady of Country Music perform her iconic anthem, “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
The Country legend turns 87 on April 14th. Happy birthday, Loretta!
