    This year celebrates the star's 50 years of entertainment in the country music business.

    Among some of those attending were Marty Stuart, Terry Clark, Ronnie McDowell, John Carter Cash, and Crook & Chase just to name a few.

    Jim Webb was Loretta Lynn's bus driver for about 17 years and played himself in her movie "Coal Miner's Daughter."

    Loretta Lynn will be honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

    On Saturday, Sept. 26, Loretta Lynn entertained with a concert at her pavilion at her Dude Range in Hurricane Mills.

    The opening act was a young group called Stealing Angels, consisting of Loretta Lynn's granddaughter, Tayla Lynn, John Wayne's granddaughter, Jennifer Wayne, and Daniel Boone's great-great-great granddaughter, Caroline Cutbirth.

    The Webbs were accompanied to the party by good friends Gary Waites, a former Cincinnati Reds baseball player, and his wife, Susie.
