Story and photos by Jennifer BronenkantThe Loretta Lynn show was a family affair beginning with performances by Lynn's son Ernest and twin daughters Peggy and Patsy before before the queen of country music hit the stage. Lynn appeared in a full length sequined gown to entertain the crowd at Summerfest on a hot Saturday night.
Her performance of honest-to-goodness real-deal country music included "Kentucky Girl," "You're Lookin' at Country" and of course "Coal Miner's Daughter" along with a medley of covers of Pasty Cline favorites "Walkin' After Midnight." "I Fall to Pieces" and "She's Got You." The music as well as the band were steeped rich with country music's earthy roots straight from the hills of Kentucky. Lynn was backed by a full band and was joined onstage by her opening act Glen Templeton for a couple of songs. With her warm stage presence, you can't help but fall in love with the coal miner's daughter all over again.
