Loretta Lynn comes to Packard Music Hall


Country music legend, and the winner of multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM awards, Loretta Lynn comes to the Packard Music Hall on June 9.

The “Coal Miner’s Daughter” was raised in poverty in a remote town in Appalachian Kentucky, she got married at age 13, and never stopped singing. In 1960 she came to Nashville and immediately pushed the boundaries of the country music world by writing songs that reflected the secrets and worries of a wife and mother.

Lynn’s instantly recognizable voice was part of her distinctive body of work, and her authenticity, originality and refusal to shy away from tough topics shown through in the lyrics to her songs. In “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’” and “Your Squaw Is on the War Path” she refused to be any man’s doormat.

She challenged her female rivals in “You Ain’t Woman Enough” and “Fist City.” And, she showed tremendous blue-collar pride in “Coal Miner’s Daughter” and “You’re Lookin’ at Country.” The 84-year-old singer isn’t afraid of controversy either. Whether the topic is sex (“Wings Upon Your Horns”),  or divorce (“Rated X”), alcohol (“Wouldn’t It Be Great”) or war (“Dear Uncle Sam”).

Loretta Lynn will be performing at the Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio on Friday, June 9. Showtime is 7:30pm. Tickets are $42, $52 and $66 and are available at, by phone at 800-745-3000 and at the Packard box office, 1703 Mahoning Ave. NW.
