    We went down to Hurricane Mills last night to a Loretta Lynn concert at her ranch. It was under a pavillion with a covered roof and open sides. The reserved seats up front were folding chairs and they had bleachers behind them for $29.00 a ticket. We took the bleachers where we would have more elbow room and was still within about 100 feet of the stage.

    Loretta, and her daughters and son performed, and there was a couple of kids who won a talent contest that sang. Loretta had to do her stuff sitting down most of the time. She took requests and had some trouble remembering the words to some of the songs. Her legs and memory might not be what it used to be, but her voice is as good as ever.

    Her son, Ernest Ray, had been celebrating his birthday and seemed to have drunk a little too much and she had to get on him a couple of times and make him shut up. He played in the band, and sung a few songs and did pretty good though.

    I've never been one to care much for concerts or other events where there were a lot of people, but we really had a good time last night and I'm planning on going back next month when Tanya Tucker is there. The best part is that it's only about 30 miles down the road from here.

    Sounds like it was a good concert.I just bought her 3 CD boxed set 'Honky Tonk Angel' not long ago.In fact when I was playing country music,my wife & I used to sing the Loretta/Conway duet 'After The Fire Is Gone'.

    Mark,
    Sounds like a wonderful time! I hate large crowds at shows. I hate it for the artist but personally I love it. I was thinking tonight that I want to have a private party concert. By invitation only and have it at Mom's. She would enjoy the company and I think I can make it clear that everyone has to clean up their mess and leave the land as it was when they arrived. She will be 87 next month and I truly think it would do her soul good to be around people that appreciate older people. What do you think?

    I used to have Loretta's autograph.............heck it may still be somewhere at Mom's. Bet you better be prepared for a lot more people at the Tanya concert.
    Have fun and take care!

    That sounds interesting. We've thought about going sometime. The last time we were in the area it was closed. We been to Loretta's show at Branson, we love her. Also would like to be there when Tanya Tucker is having the show.

    Anybody watch Tanya's Tuckerville? We like it.
