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.
