NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 26, 2012)- The Grand Ole Opry® presented
by Humana® honored one of its most beloved members, Loretta Lynn, last
night with a show celebrating her 50th Opry Anniversary. Leading up to
Lynn’s closing performance, several of her friends took the stage
throughout the night to honor her in words and song.

Among those performing their own hits as well as songs popularized by
the guest of honor were Lee Ann Womack (“I Know How”), Crystal Gayle
(“Don’t Come Home A- Drinkin’”), Miranda Lambert (“Honky Tonk Girl”),
and Pistol Annies (“Fist City”), who made their Opry debut while Lynn
sat cheering the group on from the front row of the Opry House.

After Lynn took the stage and performed her hits “They Don’t Make ‘Em
Like My Daddy Anymore” and “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” Trace Adkins
joined Lynn for the Conway Twitty/Lynn duet smash “Lead Me On.” Womack,
Gayle, and the Pistol Annies then all filed on stage to join their
musical hero in a rousing version of her signature song “Coal Miner’s
Daughter.”

Before Lynn’s final song of the night, Johnathon Arndt of the famed
Johnathon Arndt Gallery of Jewels along with Opry vice-president and
general manager Pete Fisher, presented the Opry member with a
congratulatory gift of a limited Johnathon Arndt 18 KT. pink gold and
diamond Swiss timepiece. Lynn responded to the gift and to multiplest
anding ovations from the crowd, saying, “The greatest moment of my life
was when they inducted me into the Grand Ole Opry. That’s a feeling you
only feel once in a lifetime. And I’m glad I did.”
