Loretta Lynn will ring in her 87th year with a star-studded tribute concert just in time for her birthday. Scheduled for April 1, many of country’s biggest acts will come together to honor the trailblazing singer/songwriter from Butcher Hollow, Kentucky.

Stars joining the legendary lineup include Garth Brooks, Kacey Musgraves, George Strait, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Brandy Clark, Darius Rucker, Jack White, Little Big Town, Margo Price, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies, Trisha Yearwood and more.

“I am so excited to celebrate my 87th birthday with all my friends,” said Lynn. “This is the first time I’ve ever had a birthday party! My birthday wish has come true. The only other wish I have is that Keith Urban jumps out of my birthday cake!”

According to CMT, a portion of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and The Opry Trust.

In 1960 Lynn made her Grand Ole Opry debut and became a member of the famed family just two years later. She became the first female CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1972.

Tickets for the once-in-a-lifetime showcase will go on sale beginning Friday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m via TicketMaster. Fans can buy tickets early, starting Wednesday, by using the code CELEBRATE.
