The Majestic Theatre Proudly Presents; Loretta Lynn. Tickets On Sale Now

 SAN ANTONIO, TX Back by popular demand, country music legend LORETTA LYNN performs at the Majestic Theatre (224 E. Houston St.) on Friday, August 8 at 8PM. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 28 at 10AM.  

A true icon of Country music, celebrated the 50th anniversary of her debut single in 2010. A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, a four-time GRAMMY honoree and a recipient of the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, Lynn began her career with the 1960 success of her debut single, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl.”

Loretta’s instantly recognizable delivery is one of the greatest country-music voices in history.  No songwriter has a more distinctive body of work.  In lyrics such as “Don’t Come Home A-Your Squaw Is on the War Path,” she refused to be any man’s doormat.  She challenged female rivals in “You Ain’t Woman Enough” and “Fist City.”  She showed tremendous blue-collar pride in “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and “You’re Lookin’ at Country.”  She is unafraid of controversy and like the lady herself, LORETTA LYNN’s songs shoot from the hip.

Loretta Lynn renews her creativity time and again.  Two years after she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1983, she was back on the charts with the hit, “Heart Don’t Do This to Me.”  In 1988, the year she entered the Country Music Hall of Fame, Loretta recorded with k.d. lang.  She earned a Gold record in 1994 with Honky Tonk Angels, a trio CD with Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette. She was honored at the Kennedy Center in 2003, yet pushed forward again the following year by winning two Grammy Awards for Van Lear Rose, a collaboration with rocker Jack White. 

Loretta was inducted into the national Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York in 2008.  She may have won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010, but Loretta Lynn’s life is still a work in progress.  She’s still out there on the road, still writing songs and still recording them as only she can.

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 28 at 10AM. Tickets ($40-$70) will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Majestic Theatre Box Office, online at Ticketmaster, or charge by phone at 800.745.3000. All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.
