About the Event.
Loretta Lynn has fashioned a body of work so culturally significant that just hearing her name elicits the phrase "American icon." As the first female to win Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards, she has paved the way for fellow female country music stars for decades. "To make it in this business, you either have to be first, great or different," says Miss Loretta. "And I was the first to ever go to Nashville, singin' it like the women lived it." Best known for her signature song, "Coal Miner's Daughter"—and the corresponding album, autobiography and Academy Award-winning film—Lynn's instantly recognizable delivery is one of the greatest country music voices in history. Her mature fusion of twang, grit, energy and libido shines through on her 16 No. 1 singles (and 52 Top 10 hits), including "You Ain't Woman Enough (to Take My Man)," "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (with Lovin' on Your Mind)," and "Blue Kentucky Girl." No songwriter has a more distinctive body of work. Like the lady herself, Lynn's songs shoot from the hip; some like "The Pill" were even banned by country radio. Don't miss this unforgettable evening with the First Lady of Country Music!
