    Thanks so much for sharing this. I listened to it live on Saturday but it’s so much better seeing it on video. Having Loretta present it to her made it a million times more special.

    I love the part where Loretta says ‘we’ve never had a fight – have we?’ And Crystal responds with ‘well, we’ve never had a fist fight.’ And then Peggy Sue comes over.

    A very special night for Crystal and her fans. Thanks again for sharing this.

    I wouldn’t expect Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle to have been getting into fights with each other–they didn’t grow up together. Loretta was already a mother of two–with “One On The Way”–by the time Crystal was born. Crystal would have been a peer to Loretta’s children.
