Country music legend Loretta Lynn will perform at the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland April 26.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are $35, $40, $45 and $50 and are on sale now by calling the box office at 606-324-3175 or can be purchased online at www.paramountartscenter.com, according to a news release from the arts center.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Lynn’s arrival on the music scene with her 1960 debut single, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl.”
As millions who read her 1976 autobiography or saw its Oscar winning 1980 film treatment are aware, Lynn is a "Coal Miner’s Daughter" who was raised in dire poverty in a remote Appalachian Kentucky hamlet.
