The Greensboro Coliseum Complex has announced it will host country music legend Loretta Lynn in concert at War Memorial Auditorium Friday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m.

Loretta’s instantly recognizable delivery is one of the greatest country-music voices in history, and no songwriter has a more distinctive body of work.

As millions who read her 1976 autobiography or saw its Oscar winning 1980 film treatment are aware, Loretta is a coal miner’s daughter who was raised in dire poverty in a remote Appalachian Kentucky hamlet. 

She was honored at the Kennedy Center in 2003, was inducted into the national Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2008, and she also was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. Loretta performed to a sold-out audience at War Memorial Auditorium in 2011.

Tickets will go on sale March 15 at 10 a.m.
