Loretta Lynn

I saw Loretta Lynn last night at Penn's Peak in Pennsylvania. She still has an amazing stage presence. Her twin daughter's, The Lynns served as the opening act along with their older brother Ernie, who also plays guitar when Loretta takes over. Granddaughter Tayla was a highlight.

There were times where she couldn't find her voice and missed some lyrics. "You Ain't Woman Enough (to Take My Man)", Coal Miner's Daughter, "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl", "Here I Am Again," "Blue Kentucky Girl" and "They Don't Make 'em Like My Daddy" were all in her 75 minute set.

The best moment of the show was the oft covered Patsy Cline song, “She's Got You”.

What a legend.

  1. I believe the highlight of the Loretta Lynn concert was when I helped that lady find her correct seat. I'm surprised you didn't mention that.
