Loretta Lynn will celebrate her 87th birthday on April 14, but she will get the party started on April 1 with an All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
The concert will feature performances by Alan Jackson, Brandy Clark, Darius Rucker, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Jack White, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Margo Price, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies, Trisha Yearwood and more.
Dave Cobb will serve as musical director. Net proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Opry Trust Fund and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
“I am so excited to celebrate my 87th birthday with all my friends,” says Loretta. “This is the first time I’ve ever had a birthday party! My birthday wish has come true. The only other wish I have is that Keith Urban jumps out of my birthday cake!”
Ticket pre-sale begins on Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. CT. Tickets for the general public go on sale on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. CT.
Loretta released her recent studio album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, in September 2018. Loretta suffered a stroke in May 2017, but she has made a few public appearances since then.
