The Loretta Lynn: Blue Kentucky Girl exhibit opens at the Country Music Hall of Fame on August 25th.
Loretta says, "I am so excited for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s exhibit to open this month. It’s gonna show off my 50-some-odd years in country music, and I'm so proud to share my life and music with the museum. Y'all come see us!"
Exhibition highlights include:
- Loretta's original handwritten manuscript for her chart-topping 1970 hit “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
- The 1956 model 99 Singer sewing machine she used to make her own stage clothes early in her career.
- The red-and-white polka-dot dress with sequins and silver-cord trim Loretta made when she was 14. Sissy Spacek wore the dress when she portrayed Lynn in the film Coal Miner's Daughter.
- The green chiffon Lillie Rubin gown Loretta wore at the 1972 CMA Awards, where she was named Entertainer of the Year.
- The red dress embellished with beads and sequins that Loretta wore on the cover of her 1968 album Fist City.
The exhibit closes in August of 2018.
