Love Loretta! I would like to take my Aunt, she's 82, having light strokes,waiting on the big one. The only thing that keeps her calm at night is listening to the "oldies" which consist of LL. I have taken her several times over the years to see her, but now that she's in the shape that she is it would mean the world to her to see her one more time. And to me, knowing I took her one more time.

Are you kidding me?!?! An absolute legend! Who wouldn't jump at a chance to see her live. She's truly an original.

When an icon of Americana comes to town, particularly in the later stages of life, it's an honor to witnesses her talent in person. It would be a wonderful memory to tell your kids & grandchildren that you saw Loretta Lynn in concert.

Born February 1960 in Oklahoma I grew up on country music with Daddy playing KFDI radio in our 1957 Chevrolet. Loretta Lynn was and always will be The First Lady in Country Music to us. Travelling with Mom and Daddy with the songs of Loretta Lynn on AM Radio driving up and down Route 66, Highway 60 or 77 and even on the back roads of Oklahoma will always be a memory for me. Memories made by coming home from Arkansas, California or Colorado vacation or heading to Grandma & Grandpa Brown’s house out near the Panhandle. :) 

I've been a fan for a LOOOOOONG time. My dad was a Dekalb County policeman back in the '60's and Loretta and the Wilburn Bros. were the entertainment at the Dekalb County Sheriff's Posse Rodeo. I had the opportunity to meet her and as a child would sit in her lap when she'd sit with the audience. She is a wonderful talent and even though it's years later, I still know the words to most all her hit songs. I honestly love her and what she stands for and would be thrilled to get to see her this time around.
Annette Perkins August 21, 2012 at 09:03 PM
I would love to see Loretta, I have been a fan of Loretta since the sixies. She is a real country girl,I always wanted to sing like her. I love her and Conway Twitty singing together. they seem to go together. She is the best singer of Country Music to me. I'm 64, and always wanted to see her, it will be a thrill to me.

Amazingly jealous my husband and mother in law are going and I can't because we could not afford all.of us to.go! I believe she really is a landmark for country music today. I love hearing her at random.times. makes me remember what country really sounds like
P.J. Shaw August 21, 2012 at 10:05 PM
I'd love to see this country music legend! Would make me less homesick for Nashville.
Jennifer Smith August 21, 2012 at 10:32 PM
Mrs. Lynn is A LEGEND period. Singers/Performers in this day and age can learn a lot from this great lady. I am "Working Girl" living her near the big city "In Another World" and miss "Living in God's Country", this would definately make me miss it way less and "Take Me Back Home Again" even if just for the evening. Whether you are looking at Mrs. Lynn or myself "You're looking at Country"! Chastain is the perfect place for "Wine, Women and Song".
Jonnie Poer August 21, 2012 at 11:06 PM
Would love to take my Mother to see her all time favorite country female artist. I grew up listening to Loretta Lynn and it would be a honor to take her to see her live in concert.
Gerald Ingle August 22, 2012 at 12:06 AM
Absolutely love Loretta Lynn. She epitomizes American music like no one else......love, love, love here.....
AllAtwitter August 22, 2012 at 01:20 AM
I'd love to see Loretta Lynn because she is the epitome of the Queen of Country Music. She came from humble beginnings and rose to stardom through not only her wonderful vocal talent but hard work. She is an example for all who endeavor to be a musician in the world of performing live music.
Donna Crisp August 22, 2012 at 01:52 AM
Grew Up On all Styles of Music. Loretta is a Classy Lady Icon. Women can relate to Her and Many of Her Song. She tells How we Lived and Loved with Heart and Soul.. She tell Our Life Stories. It would be an Honor To attend Her Concert. Sincerely Donna E.

I've watched coal miners daughter to many times to count. Nothing could compare to seeing the real lady live and in person!

Bob Lust August 22, 2012 at 01:13 PM
She's a great gal, one whom I've admired and listened to since the early days. I don't know anybody that doesn't like her. I'd love to see her in person..
Kendra August 22, 2012 at 01:15 PM
real music to enjoy for an over due date night! my parents are having a sleepover with the kids and it would be amazing to suprise my husband with this special event! Running around all day juggling life sometimes you forget about the little things that make life special. Lorretta Lynne captures life stories in her music and I would love to share this with my best friend, my husband.
Mikayla Randle August 22, 2012 at 01:37 PM
HAHA I would love these tickets to enjoy with my mother, who has been singing Loretta Lynn's 'One's On the Way' to every pregnant lady !!!! Ever since 1971!!!
janet h russell August 22, 2012 at 03:52 PM
It doesn't matter which part of the country or the world you are from, there is a bit of the coal miners daughter in every woman. She is a genuine "sheroe".

My 10 year old son loves Loretta Lynn and would love more than anything to see her in person. He went to the ranch this summer with his cousin. He sings Coal Miners Daughter to the top of his lungs daily. He admires her and I would love to suprise him with this gift.
