Events for August 2016
Loretta Lynn In Concert
7:30 p.m. The Peabody Daytona Beach, 600 Auditorium Blvd., Daytona Beach. 3 p.m. For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful-and as culturally significant-as any female performer you'd care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner's Daughter-the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself-has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. http://www.PeabodyAuditorium.org (386) 671-3460
