A Tribute to Loretta Lynn

Wednesday’s show opened with a flashback of Loretta Lynn accepting her first-ever Entertainer of the Year award in 1972. Carrie Underwood then took the stage, belting out her rendition of Lynn’s 1966 hit track “You Ain’t Woman Enough.” Miranda Lambert was next with her version of Lynn’s 1967 hit “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind).” Rounding out the trio was Reba McEntire, who belted out “You’re Looking at Country.” The trio then joined forces for “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” As the tribute went on, Lynn’s photos were shown on the screen and country stars sang together.

The somber songstress first took a moment to share a message with her fans, while touching on the death of her mother, Naomi Judd earlier this year. “In death there is life, and here I am,” Judd shared, before telling fans, “Thank you for your love and your support.” It was a sweet moment made even sweeter when the winners for Best Vocal Duo, The Brothers Osbourne, made sure to keep Judd on stage and praise her for inspiring them.
