Loretta Lynn

It was announced today that The Recording Academy's second annual Grammy Salute to Country Music will honor Grand Ole Opry member and Country Music Hall of Famer, Loretta Lynn. A tribute show will take place on Tuesday October 12 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. At that show, Loretta will receive The Recording Academy President's Merit Award in recognition of her 50 year career in country music. Last year, the first for the award, Vince Gill received the honor

Congratulations to Loretta on this great honor. With the award being given that close to the Opry's birthday weekend, maybe we will get lucky and some of those who are honoring Loretta will be at the Opry that weekend.

  1. She is incredibly deserving--frankly, she should have gotten it ahead of Vince, and I mean no disrespect to him (he probably would say the same thing). And here's hoping those honoring her decide to visit the Opry. has a story about Blake Shelton being a big Opry fan and his love for the show, but also saying he may be a bit too "polarizing" in his approach to be made a member. If he loves it that much, he should be made a member--if he is going to be serious about it.
