Loretta Lynn came face to face with an eerie lookalike during Monday night’s (4/1) all-star birthday concert celebration. She was treated to a first look at her wax figure, which is on display at Madame Tussauds Nashville.

Lynn met her double backstage during Loretta Lynn: An All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The concert featured a long list of stars like Alan Jackson, Brandi Carlile, Darius Rucker, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Trisha Yearwood and many more, plus a rousing all-hands-on-deck finale performance with Lynn herself. Afterwards, the Country Music Hall of Famer said her surprise was the perfect birthday gift.

“Seeing my Madame Tussauds wax figure for the first time tonight has been the icing on the cake,” she said. “Standing beside my 1970s self at this star-studded birthday party is a trip down memory lane!

Net proceeds from the birthday show will benefit the Opry Trust Fund and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Lynn’s wax figure is based on her late-’70s look, dressed in a long blue which was both worn onstage and featured on the cover of her 1977 album, I Remember Patsy. It can now be seen at Madame Tussauds Nashville in the Opry Mills Mall, which opened in 2017 and also features hyper-realistic statues of Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and more. Each figure takes months to create, using an extensive process honed over the famous attraction’s 200-year history.
