Country fans are emotional after Loretta Lynn’s latest announcement. I can’t believe it’s true…
Loretta Lynn has every country music fan in tears after her latest appearance. It was her very first since she suffered a massive stroke months ago.
The country legend made a surprise appearance at the Country Music Hall of Fame. The appearance was for a very special reason, too.
Lynn was there to help induct the wonderful Alan Jackson into the family on Sunday. It was an emotional time for everyone, especially Alan and Loretta.
You may not know this, but Loretta believed in Alan before he started to make it in the big world. She recalled the first time meeting Alan, knowing that he was going to do big things.
Lynn said that he was practicing backstage, and she told him that he was going to be one of the greatest singers in country music. Obviously, she knows talent when she sees it.
Now years and years later she has the honor of inducting him into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
“The first time I ever met Alan, he looked like a scared little boy,” Lynn said after being led to the podium by Jackson. “He was practicing backstage, going through his songs, and I remember I looked at him and said, ‘You’re going to be one of the greatest singers in country music.’ He hasn’t let me down.”
What better way to make your first appearance than to honor someone that you knew way back in the day? I don’t think that there is one!
Loretta is so generous and loving and we were thrilled to see her have this opportunity. Especially after all that she has been through the past few months.
What an incredible day for both Alan Jackson and Loretta! This is so exciting!
