Toledo to throw birthday party for Loretta LynnWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Toledo Free Press and 107.7 The Wolf are teaming with Lone Wolf Productions to make Loretta Lynn’s Toledo concert a special night.
“The Queen of Country Music” will appear at the Stranahan Theater at 7:30 p.m. April 14, her birthday. Two contest winners will receive front row seats, signed memorabilia and join the audience in a chorus of “Happy Birthday.”
Concert promoter Craig Wolf said he was inspired to bring Lynn to Toledo after seeing a November Toledo Free Press cover story with Lynn and Toledo fan Rick Cornett, who has seen her in concert 400 times, ran her international fan club for several years and publishes an online newsletter with 4,000 subscribers. Cornett said he has approached Mayor Mike Bell’s office about having Bell onstage to present Lynn with a key to the city.
To enter to win the grand prize package, and the second prize of two free tickets to the show, e-mail “Loretta” to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Contest winners will be chosen by April 11.
Tickets go on sale Feb. 19 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster Outlets, Ticketmaster charge by phone 1-800-745-3000, or The Stranahan Theater box office (419) 381-8851.
