The Ryman Auditorium was filled with talent on Tuesday night (Sep 17). It was home to the 2019 Nashville Songwriters Awards.
Several awards were handed out, speeches were said, songs were sung, and it was the first time since her birthday celebration in April that the legendary Loretta Lynn had made an appearance.
She was being awarded the Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award and was honored by Kellie Pickler, who performed “Honky Tonk Girl,” Reba McEntire’s version of “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” and her granddaughter Tayla Lynn, who sang “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
Loretta was accompanied onstage to receive her award by Kid Rock, and she told the crowd, “Hello everybody, I’m Loretta. I want y’all to know I love you. Thank y’all for coming out. Thank y’all. I love ya.”
The country legend is truly one of a kind, and these photos prove how incredible she looks at 87 years, after a stroke and broken hip!
Watch Loretta accept the highest honor in the video below.
