If you’ll remember last year Country Music Legend Loretta Lynn earned my TOP 2 SPOT on my Top 50 albums of 2016, and this year on Friday August 18th she will release an all new album called “Wouldn’t It Be Great”. after a long lapse of time since her latest release of “Van Lear Rose” we didn’t have any new material at all. Now in a brief two year span we have TWO mega albums and a TON of concerts from one of the eldest and most active Country Music Legends.

At the age of 85 she has recorded an album comprised entirely of songs written and co-written by her and was recorded in Hendersonville Tennessee with producers Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash. She performed two sold out shows at the Ryman Auditorium and will return in August on the 25th and 26th.

The track listing for Wouldn’t It Be Great is:

1. Wouldn’t It Be Great – (Loretta Lynn)
2. Ruby’s Stool – (Loretta Lynn, Shawn Camp)
3. I’m Dying for Someone to Live For – (Loretta Lynn, Shawn Camp)

Well now, here I am bringing you a wonderful festival in Scranton Pennsylvania called the Susquehanna Breakdown and it happens on May 19th and 20th 2017. Like all of my 175 festivals this one is privately run and features original local REAL music from local bands, you know how it goes. I’ll research hotels and the info about the event. These six hotels are all about thirty miles or less from the event for those of you like me that cannot camp.

For those of you that are more hardcore than me and do camp,this festival does indeed require you to purchase a seperate camping ticket for either or both days. You will NOT be allowed to park by your campsite and you CAN have fires. The venue will open friday at 4pm for early campers, and ALL campground after 2AM quiet time will be strictly enforeced until 8AM.

NO PERSONAL ALCOHOL is permitted for this one folks, you can bring all else. NO GRILLS either folks. But hey guys camping isn’t much but 20 dollars more for the weekend so this is indeed a VERY inexpensive festival on my list ran by some truly fine folks.
