“Loretta Lynn has blazed a trail for women in music, not just country music,” said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC. “And she hasn’t stood still, partnering recently with Jack White of the White Stripes, bringing rootsy country/gospel/blues to an entirely new rock generation. DPAC is the perfect venue for her- a multi-generational audience will not only see and hear her; Durham concert-goers will truly feel her performance.”

The Coal Miner’s Daughter- refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself. Lynn has written over 160 songs and released 70 albums. She has had ten Number 1 albums and sixteen Number 1 singles on the country charts. Lynn has garnered dozens of awards, including four Grammy® awards, seven American Music Awards, eight Broadcast Music Incorporated awards, and ten Academy of Country Music awards. In 1972, Lynn was the first woman named "Entertainer of the Year" by the CMA. She was named "Artist of the Decade" for the 1970s by the Academy of Country Music. Lynn was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988 and the Country Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1999. She was also the recipient of Kennedy Center Honors in 2003. Lynn is also ranked 65th on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
