Country music icon Loretta Lynn will host well-known Southern gospel musicians to perform during a two-day inspirational event at her ranch home.

The inaugural "Loretta Lynn's Gospel Music Festival" is to be held Sept. 28-29 at Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

"It's kind of like an old-time 'all-day singing and dinner on the ground,' " Lynn, 81, said. "I got to thinking, I have a big ranch where I live, so I decided to throw a good ol' gospel weekend here. I want family and friends to bring a blanket, set up a picnic and then enjoy some of my favorite gospel music singers.

"I may even come down and sing a song myself," she added. "I hope it will be something we can keep going every year. I already have a big campground and cabins where people can stay. We also have a big stage; we have concerts all summer and have done so since 1974."

Scheduled to appear during the festival are Mark Lowry, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, Karen Peck and New River, Gold City, Rambo-McGuire, The Singing Cookes, The Freemans, Brian Free & Assurance, Michael Combs, Archie Watkins & Smoky Mountain Reunion and The Sneed Family.

Guests to the event can also tour Lynn's plantation home, the Butcher Holler Home Place and the new 18,000-square-foot Coal Miner's Daughter museum.
