Alan Jackson Performs At Loretta Lynn's 87th Birthday Celebration

Country legend Alan Jackson serenades fellow superstar Loretta Lynn at her 87th birthday party.


Loretta Lynn has been called the queen of country music. Her iconic songs have truly stood the test of time. In fact, Loretta has written every single song that she ever recorded.

Writing was actually more important to her than singing and the fans responded in waves. She has been called a ‘trailblazer’ and a ‘powerful voice for women.’

Her unique style and heartfelt lyrics paved the way for other female voices. So, it’s no wonder that superstars from all areas of entertainment came out to celebrate her birthday. One of those performers is country great Alan Jackson.

Loretta specifically requested that Alan perform at her birthday and asked that he sing his hit song ‘Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning).’

This song was released after the September 11th attack and it immediately resonated with hearts all over the nation. Even today, these lyrics hold so much weight and importance in the USA.

‘I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN, but I'm not sure I can tell you
The diff'rence in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love’

You can see Loretta sitting front row during the entire performance. And afterwards, the whole theater stood for a rousing standing ovation. What an incredible birthday celebration.
