Hey, all you country music lovers! Mark your calendars for May 31, 2013, when country music legend Loretta Lynn will appear in concert at the Embassy Theatre, 125 W. Jefferson Blvd., Fort Wayne, Indiana. Best known for her 1970 hit record, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Lynn’s music has consistently earned more than 50 of the Top Ten songs throughout her career. Her rags-to-riches autobiography, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” made the New York Times’ bestseller list, and subsequently became an Academy Award winning movie. Lynn also appeared on the cover of Newsweek in 1973 when her hit song “Dear Uncle Sam” was one of the first musical venues for protesting the Vietnam War. The mega-star will be opened by Holly Williams, a singer-songwriter and the granddaughter of Hank Williams, Sr. and the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. Williams recently toured with Keith Urban, Billy Bob Thornton, Jewel, Train and other musicians and her latest album – “The Highway” – includes backup singing by Dierks Bentley, Jackson Browne and Jakob Dylan. Tickets for the concert which will begin at 8 p.m. can be purchased at the Embassy box office 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday or at Ticketmaster locations (www.ticketmaster.com) or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
