Monday, September 29th, 2014Purchase tickets HERE For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful-and as culturally significant-as any female performer you’d care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner’s Daughter-the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself-has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville super-stardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. “Before country was ‘cool,’ Crystal was ‘class’…” Never has one reviewer captured a platinum clad, Grammy Award winning career so beautifully in so few words. Crystal encapsulates everything the dazzling qualities of her name implies-although that name came to her in quite an unusual fashion. “Crystal” came at the suggestion of Brenda Gayle Webb’s older sister, Loretta Lynn-who knowing there was already a ‘Brenda Lee’ currently successful in the music industry-suggested her younger sibling adopt the name ‘Crystal’ when she began recording.

Zak, Nick and Aaron investigate their first celebrity home. In Hurricane Mills, TN they visit the famous Loretta Lynn Plantation House. The iconic “Queen of Country” herself, Loretta Lynn shares the paranormal encounters she has experienced in the house. Loretta first details her sighting of “the moaning woman.”
Over a century ago, a woman named Buela M. Anderson cried herself to death shortly after the loss of her baby. Loretta saw this apparition dressed in white pacing the balcony of the house. Loretta also relates an experience her son had in “the Brown Room” of the house, where the spirit of a Civil War soldier attempted to forcefully take off his boots. Next the team visits the basement that was once a slave pit, the cemetery and the mill. Each of these areas has paranormal stories associated with them.

Country music icon Loretta Lynn recently sat smiling on a small stage in her Coal Miner’s Daughter Museum in remote Hurricane Mills, Tenn., and revealed the secret to her legendary endurance: “staying grounded.”
“I’m proud of my awards,” the 76-year-old singer said at a bash to celebrate her 50th anniversary as a recording artist. “But you just don’t forget where you come from. All I do is close my eyes, and I go back to that little one-room cabin where I lived till I was 11 years old.”
These days, maintaining her humility must be especially tough. Lynn’s new CD, Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn, featuring daughter Patsy and the White Stripes, Kid Rock, Alan Jackson and Carrie Underwood, hits stores Tuesday. Wednesday, she will be honored with a tribute on the CMA Awards.
If ever there was a time for Lynn to rest on her laurels, it would be now. But not this reigning Queen of Country. (more…)
