I didn't know if this warranted a new thread, but if someone wants to, go right ahead. ... -10-and-11
Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Jack White got the kids to listen to Loretta Lynn, galvanizing the coal miner’s daughter’s twilight career with the chart-topping, Grammy-winning modern-day country classic Van Lear Rose? While it seems quite likely a full-length VLR follow-up may never come (but hell, what a discographical high note to go out on), the now 82-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer — whose classics include “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind,” “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl,” “Rated X” and the anti-war lament “Dear Uncle Sam” — is still up for the occasional string of gigs. And frankly, more and more, those are must-see events in the face of, well, mortality.
You can catch Lynn at this fall at the Ryman, where she’ll do a two-night stand Oct. 10 and 11. Tickets are $45-$75 and go on sale Friday, June 27, at 10 a.m., right here and here.
It's a shame Jack will be in Mexico at this time. Would love for him to join her on stage for a tune or 2. ;)

^^ When I saw her last year at the 9:30 Club here in DC, I got the biggest kick out of her talking about how it was Jack who told her that she had to play at that venue (she's apparently played there several times since he told her that), and how the next time she comes back there, she's gonna bring him with her. No matter where it happens, if he ever does join her on stage somewhere, someone had better capture it for the rest of us to see vicariously.
"And the message is clear: if we want Jack White as our hero, he will entertain, but not pander. We have to accept all his flaws, whims, caprices and manias as a critical, sometimes uncomfortable, part of the contract."
