LORETTA LYNN
7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $40-$50.

When Loretta Lynn last visited Arkansas, she took the stage at Robinson with all the requisite poof and sparkle you'd expect from the queen of country music, and she sang in a voice about as bright and strong as she did half a century ago. But perhaps owing to her age — she was 73 at the time — she ceded a lot of stage time to a younger generation of Lynns. For fans of “Coal Miner's Daughter,” it was nice to see the narrative played out, to get a listen and a look at Loretta's children all grown up, but otherwise, the second- and third-generation Lynns were pretty much a drag, especially relative to their mom. So let's keep our fingers crossed that she left her brood at home. Either way, if you're a fan and you haven't ever seen Loretta Lynn, you better seize the opportunity. There's not too many 75-year-olds still touring regularly.
