Loretta Lynn is still at it and probably always will be; she recently posted a series of photos on Twitter that show her hard at work. She captioned the photos, “Me in the chair, Patsy and team behind the camera—we work hard, we mess it up, we laugh a lot, but we get it done!”
Lynn added the hashtags “another interview,” “never retire,” “don’t stop,” and “still working.”
It looks like the 89-year-old isn’t stopping anytime soon; she’s still performing, still doing interviews, and still living her best life. At least she still takes the time to goof around and have fun while she’s working.
Loretta Lynn’s Favorite Moments from Hometown Rising Benefit Concert
The benefit concert Hometown Rising went off without a hitch on Sept. 13. It featured all-star performances by BRELAND, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Little Big Town, and Luke Combs, among others.
On Sept. 16 Loretta Lynn posted a video of great moments from the concert; the video featured clips of Little Big Town and Chris Janson performing. Reba McEntire thanked the crowd for turning out, saying, “We’ll continue on with good country music and families and friends and neighbors joining in to help each other.”
Keith Urban signed his guitar along with BRELAND, and then brought out his wife Nicole Kidman to add her signature. There was a clip of Brittany Spencer looking gorgeous in a long white dress performing “Compassion,” as well as Luke Brian performing “Most People are Good.” The short video ended with Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks singing “Whiskey to Wine.”
It looks like the concert was an amazing collection of performers for a great cause. Put on at the Grand Ole Opry, the concert raised nearly $1 million for flood relief in Humphreys County. The money went directly to the United Way of Humphreys County to benefit families and individuals devastated by the flooding in Middle Tennessee.
Remembering Patsy Cline
Loretta Lynn recently paid homage to her experience knowing Patsy Cline in a tweet response to a TikTok trend started by Taylor Swift and Shania Twain. Of the great singer, Lynn said, “As time has gone on, I haven’t stopped loving Patsy or thinking about her and talking to her, even. Not for one single day. She changed my life forever.”
She also featured a photo of her and Kitty Wells, another significant influence, alongside the photos of Patsy Cline. Lynn called both Cline and Wells “trailblazers” and “pioneers” of their time.
