Additional performers and guests to be announced in the coming days.

CMT Producers are looking forward to showcasing her incredible music on a national platform:

“We are truly honored to work closely alongside Loretta’s family to create a celebration of life fit for a true queen of country music, Loretta Lynn.

She was a true original, a woman who always sang from her heart, never shied away from challenging the status quo and blazed the path forward for her fellow female artists.

From her firecracker spirit and signature musicality to her unmistakable country style and unparalleled authenticity, we look forward to honoring her in the best way we know how: sharing stories and songs with her family, friends and the legions of fans she loved dearly.”

The public memorial service is set to air commercial-free on Sunday, October 30th at 7pmEST exclusively on CMT, with two additional commercial-free encores on Wednesday, November 2nd at 8pm EST and Sunday, November 6th at 11amEST. The special will also be made available on Paramount+ in early 2023.
