Lynn schedules Greenville concert

GREENVILLE — As part of her 50th anniversary of her arrival on the country music scene, Loretta Lynn will be in concert next month in Greenville.

The concert is scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28, in Greenville Municipal Auditorium. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

According to her biography, Lynn was 19 years old the first time she hit the big time at the local fair. Her canned vegetables brought home 17 blue ribbons and made her canner of the year. Now that’s impressive for a girl from Butcher Holler, Ky.

Fortunately, she decided to try her hand at things other than canning. Her first guitar cost $17 and with it, Lynn — the daughter of a coal miner — gave voice to a new generation. 

Now, more than 50 years after she cut her first record and canned her first vegetables, Lynn still reigns as the record-setting queen of country music.

Lynn, also dubbed “The First Lady of Country Music,” has charted 16 number one hits and authored six books.

 She is scheduled to perform classics such as “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, “You Ain’t Woman Enough,”  “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin” and several additional memorable songs.   

Tickets will range from $45 to $65.  Reserved seats may be purchased in person at the box office, by calling 903-457-2994 or by logging on www.showtimeatthegma.com.
