The Grand Ole Opry will celebrate country legend Loretta Lynn‘s 90th birthday on Opry Country Classics on Thursday, April 14 at the Grand Ole Opry House.
The birthday celebration will feature performances by Lynn’s sister and fellow Opry member, Crystal Gayle, as well as The Gatlin Brothers, Elizabeth Cook, Maggie Rose and the Opry debut of duo Twitty and Lynn.
Lynn, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, was born on April 14, 1932 in Butcher Holler, Kentucky. She made her Opry debut on Oct. 15, 1960, was officially inducted as a member on Sept. 25, 1962, and went on to become one of the institution’s most celebrated legends. Of her countless accolades, Lynn has been honored with three Grammy Awards, eight CMA Awards, membership into the Country Music and Songwriters Halls of Fame, and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. She was the first female artist to win the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year prize in 1972.
Twitty and Lynn, who will make their Opry debut at the celebration, is a duo comprised of the grandchildren of Lynn and her frequent duet partner and country legend, Conway Twitty. Tayla Lynn and Tre Twitty have taken to the road to honor their grandparents with their tributes to Lynn and Twitty.
