Loretta Lynn, Honky Tonk Girl

The great Loretta Lynn celebrated her 81st birthday just a few weeks ago and you can catch her in action at her annual Memorial Day concert May 25 at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN along with Joey+Rory and Joe Nichols.  Lynn has been in the studio over the last year with John Carter Cash producing and we hope we hear that album in the very near future.  And next year, look for Zooey Daschanal to star in the Broadway production of Lynn’s memoir, Coal Miner’s Daughter.

Here's Lynn on stage with her prized Epiphone at the Grand Ole Opry in downtown Nashville in 1966 from the b-movie classic, Nashville Rebel with Waylon Jennings, Tex Ritter, and Porter Wagoner. Slide the cursor to about 1:26:22 (almost the end of the film) to see the performance but you may want to stay for the whole show.  Now that's country music.
