Loretta Lynn headed to Savannah, tickets on sale Friday

Well this is a nice surprise.

Loretta Lynn — now 81 — will perform at Johnny Mercer Theatre in Savannah on October 6th. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 26th.

As I write this, the date hasn’t yet shown up on Lynn’s website or official Facebook page, but the date has been published by the Savannah Morning News and Bob 106.9.

From the SMN:

Tickets go on sale Friday and can be purchased at the Savannah Civic Center box office and etix.com

I don’t know if Lynn will be looking for any local support, but I’d like to nominate Damon and the Shitkickers.

So, good news.
