|Wednesday October 11, 2017 (Hurricane Mills, TN) The Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival throttled into Hurricane Mills, TN September 28 -October 1, for it’s inaugural year and delivered an event of top quality production, with a grass roots southern hospitality feel. Guests are saying this was a “class act event” revolving around all things motorcycle, music and camping.
The event hosted motorcycle riders of all makes and models at one of the most storied and beautiful ranches in the great state of Tennessee, Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.
Attendees enjoyed live music at multiple locations within the ranch including top acts such as; Ben Haggard, the youngest son of late country music legend, Merle Haggard, legendary John Anderson, who kicked off the first night by performing some of his top hits from the more than 40 singles he’s charted over his 30 year career. Also performing was Tim Montana, who spent the past year touring with ZZ Top and Kid Rock. Last spring, Tim’s collaboration song with Billy Gibbons “This Beard Came Here to Party,” became a soundtrack to the Nashville Predators’ NHL Stanley Cup run. Taking the stage on Saturday night was Jared Blake, a motorcyclist himself, who performs at rallies across the country, a wider audience knew him as a contestant on the first season of The Voice, reaching top 4 on Blake Shelton‘s team.
Guests also enjoyed The Steel Woods, Bishop Gunn, Keith Anderson, Stone Senate, and Mountain Sprout, who played some of the best blue grass music late night down at the waterin’ hole by the creek.
The highlight of the event of course, was Miss Loretta Lynn herself taking to the stage; this was her first appearance since her stroke back in May of this year. This was an extraordinarily intimate afternoon with Loretta and her family, along with singing some of her top hits, Loretta shared stories as she embraced the crowd to let them all know just how happy she was to welcome them all to her ranch. For those in attendance, it was a once-in-a lifetime experience to be so close and intimate with the legendary Queen of Country.
