Nashville, TN â€“ The hills will ring with the glorious sounds of Gospel music asÂ Loretta LynnÂ welcomes fans to the inauguralÂ â€œLoretta Lynnâ€™s Gospel Music Festivalâ€Â to be held at herÂ Hurricane Mills, TNÂ ranchÂ September 28-29, 2013.
The Country music icon has a well-documented love of Gospel music and has consistently shared music of faith in her concerts and recordings. Now, for the first time, she welcomes the music to her home as the top acts in Gospel music plan to perform during the two-day inspirational event.
â€œIts kind of like an old-time â€œall-day singing and dinner on the ground,â€ says Ms. Lynn. â€œI got to thinking. I have a big ranch where I live so I decided to throw a good ole Gospel weekend here! I want family and friends to bring a blanket, set up a picnic and then enjoy some of my favorite Gospel music singers! I may even come down and sing a song myself! I hope it will be something we can keep going every year. I already have a big campground and cabins where people can stay. We also have a big stage – we have concerts all summer and have done so since 1974.â€
Scheduled to appear during the two-day event areÂ Mark Lowry, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, Karen Peck & New River, Gold City, Rambo-McGuire, The Singing Cookes, The Freemans, Brian Free & Assurance, Michael Combs, Archie Watkins & Smoky Mountain Reunion,Â andÂ The Sneed Family.
For those arriving earlyÂ on FridayÂ night,Â September 27, 2013, there will be a special bon-fire and sing-a-long beginning atÂ 8:00 PM.
“I should have started this years ago,” comments Lynn. “But, it’s never too late – I am inviting everyone to my ranch to have a great ole Gospel time! It’ll be a fun time for the whole family. Speaking of family, I want to thank Jeff Sneed and The Sneed Family for helping me plan and promote this Gospel Music Festival. We sure are looking forward to this special time!”
