For over 50 years Loretta Lynn 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 superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. She recently marked an amazing milestone-50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and now you can see her LIVE! at the Arlington Music Hall.
This show will also feature singer/songwriter Holly Williams. Holly Williams, the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and granddaughter of the legendary Hank Williams, released her debut album “The Ones We Never Knew in 2004. The follow-up, “Here With Me” was released in 2009, earning high praise from The New York Times, The L.A. Times, USA Today, People, Entertainment Weekly, American Songwriter, and NPR Weekend Edition (Sunday). She has recently released her third studio album, “The Highway” and is receiving tremendous reviews!
