LORETTA LYNN RANCH ANNOUNCES TRAIL RIDE POSTPONEMENT

Written by SGN Scoops on August 15, 2013 – 1:25 pm -

Nashville, TN – Recent occurrences at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN – including storm damage and a fire in the lorettacommercial kitchen – have forced organizers to postpone the popular Loretta Lynn’s Bi-Annual Trail Ride that was set for September 2-7, 2013.
The trails are currently “under construction” and ranch workers are concerned with the safety of the beloved guests and campers. “I hate to cancel this ride,” said Loretta Lynn. “This is one of my favorite things we do at the ranch but Mother Nature sure dealt us a big blow with the recent storm and then we had the fire and it really set us back. We are trying to make sure everyone is safe and that’s our main concern. We sure hope to have everything back in order soon for more trail rides. I’ve been putting on the big organized trail rides for 30 years now and I ain’t about to stop … we just need a little more time.”
All other events at the Loretta Lynn Ranch – including the weekend Wrangler camp – will proceed as scheduled. Guests  may inquire by calling 931-296-7700. Organizers will announce a new trail ride date as soon as possible.
Legendary Country Music Hall of Fame member Merle Haggard, Country Music sensation Kacey Musgraves and the Queen of Country Music herself, Loretta Lynn, are the next set to take the stage during the weekend of August 31 – September 1, 2013.
Tickets for all concerts and more information on future events is available online at www.LorettaLynn.com.

SHERRY DAMRON RELEASES WRITING COLLABORATION WITH LEGENDARY LORETTA LYNN.

Written by SGN Scoops on August 3, 2012 – 5:15 am -

Sherry Damron of Vadalia, GA has just released “You Ain’t Devil Enough” on iTunes. The song is a rewrite of Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough”.
Sherry says: “I have always loved Loretta Lynn & grew up hearing her music. I was sitting at the piano one day and began to play “You Ain’t Devil Enough To Change God’s Plans”. I wrote the chorus in about five minutes and within 30 minutes I had re-written the whole song. I purchased the original soundtrack & sang the song at a Conference & the response was overwhelming. I wanted to record it but knew I needed permission so I sent a very rough copy to Ms. Lynn’s office and within a few weeks I received a call saying that Ms. Lynn liked the song. I was given a single song agreement by Ms. Lynn and Sure Fire Recording with her blessing to record the song. It is proof that in fact, the devil cannot change the plan & purpose of God on anyone’s life, if that individual will give their life, messed up and all, into God’s capable & strong hands. Our God’s thoughts toward us are that of good and to bring us to an expected future. I hope everyone will enjoy the song and that it will minister to many!”
Sherry, her husband and their son are preaching the gospel in churches and arenas nationwide as well as abroad. They have a TV program “I STILL BELIEVE” which is airing four times weekly. Dwayne and Sherry pastor “The Sanctuary” in Vidalia, Georgia and have also established an extension of the ministry in Pakistan.
“You Ain’t Devil Enough” will be released to gospel radio during the month of August.
