Loretta Lynn Looking Great During Rare Public Appearance in Nashville [Watch]

Since suffering a stroke in May 2017, Loretta Lynn, 87, has only made a handful of public appearances, but she stepped out on July 5 to attend Ray Stevens’ show at his Nashville theater, CabaRay—and she looked great.

Ray hosted Loretta and her group at his VIP booth, where they dined and watched the newest electee of the Country Music Hall of Fame perform. Ray made sure the audience knew they were in the presence of country music royalty by introducing Loretta to the crowd before his show.

“There are queens and first ladies of country music, but there’s only one Coal Miner’s Daughter,” said Ray. “Bless you, Loretta. You are a treasure!”

“It was a huge treat for me to go to Ray Stevens’ show at CabaRay this past weekend,” says Loretta. “He kept me laughing the whole time. He’s such a wonderful entertainer. I am so happy that he’ll be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this year.”

Watch the CabaRay crowd give Loretta a rousing ovation below.

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

2020 was a year that taught us all a lot. Thomas Rhett reflects on the year we just left behind, and what he will take with him into this new year, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers. But for us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down. And so I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”
