Loretta Lynn to host Gospel Music Festival

Loretta Lynn.

The hills will ring with the glorious sounds of Gospel music as Loretta Lynn welcomes fans to the inaugural “Loretta Lynn’s Gospel Music Festival” to be held at her Hurricane Mills, TN ranch September 28-29, 2013.

The Country music icon has a well-documented love of Gospel music and has consistently shared music of faith in her concerts and recordings. Now, for the first time, she welcomes the music to her home as the top acts in Gospel music plan to perform during the two-day inspirational event.

Loretta said:

“Its kind of like an old-time “all-day singing and dinner on the ground. I got to thinking. I have a big ranch where I live so I decided to throw a good ole Gospel weekend here! I want family and friends to bring a blanket, set up a picnic and then enjoy some of my favorite Gospel music singers! I may even come down and sing a song myself! I hope it will be something we can keep going every year. I already have a big campground and cabins where people can stay. We also have a big stage – we have concerts all summer and have done so since 1974.”

Scheduled to appear during the two-day event are Mark Lowry, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, Karen Peck & New River, Gold City, Rambo-McGuire, The Singing Cookes, The Freemans, Brian Free & Assurance, Michael Combs, Archie Watkins & Smoky Mountain Reunion, and The Sneed Family.

For those arriving early on Friday night, September 27, 2013, there will be a special bon-fire and sing-a-long beginning at 8:00 PM.
