A legendary singer who’s more than a little bit country is about to celebrate a birthday — Loretta Lynn will turn 87 on April 14 — and in honor of the occasion, she’s throwing herself an all-star tribute.
The AP reports that Jack White, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood and others will be on hand for the April 1 concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Lynn, whose story was told in the Oscar-winning 1980 movie “Coal Miner’s Daughter” starring Sissy Spacek, is known for a string of country hits including “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)” and “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind).”
“She released her album ‘Wouldn’t It Be Great’ last year, but hasn’t been performing publicly since she had a stroke in 2017 and missed being honored at the CMT Artists of the Year show last October due to an illness,” the AP notes.
Other artists lined up for the tribute include Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, Darius Rucker and the Pistol Annies.
