“Loretta Lynn!” She’s coming to Branson! It hardly seems necessary to say anything more...she’s legendary country music royalty, and there’s no other singer of any genre quite like her. Her sincere, straight-shootin’ style of songwriting hit home for women everywhere when she first landed on the country’s radar in the 60’s, and it hasn’t lessened over the decades since. Songs like You Ain’t Women Enough and Fist City were warnings about her man being her man, while songs like Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind) cautioned men who sat in bars while their women were home working. Her best known chart topping hit, Coal Miner’s Daughter, was so influential, it spawned the huge hit movie that nabbed a Golden Globe for Sissy Spacek, as well as her only Oscar.
Lynn has earned an astonishing number of awards and accolades, including a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement - one of her three Grammy’s; another came from her collaboration with rocker, Jack White. She was also the first woman to be named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association, and she was presented with the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama in 2013. Lynn’s also been named the top female vocalist and female artist numerous times by the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.
“Loretta Lynn’s” music may reflect a strong, tough, and independent woman, but her personal style has always been one that flaunts her beauty and femininity. She stood up for what was right where women are concerned, long before it was the norm, and her fan base has always been ruled by females, and that’s just the way she likes it! She’s landed on the country music charts an astounding number of times; she’s has 52 top ten hits and an amazing 16 that landed at number one! Her top hits include Fist City, Trouble in Paradise, and She’s Got You.
“Loretta Lynn” is pure country music gold, and you’ve got a chance to see her shine in Branson; but it’s for two nights only - October 14 and 15 - so you’d better get your seat saved early!
