For the Music Lover: Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Tennessee

Loretta Lynn's Ranch, Tennessee© 2009 Courtesy of Tennessee Department of Tourist DevelopmentThe Coal Miner's Daughter Museum is only one of the many attractions surrounding the country music great's former home.

44 Hurricane Mills Rd., Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

Loretta Lynn, one of country music’s best-known divas, is also a good businesswoman. One of her most popular ventures is Loretta Lynn’s Ranch (originally Dude Ranch), about an hour’s drive west of Nashville. The place offers a variety of things to do, much of it related to Loretta’s life and career; the large Coal Miner’s Daughter Museum and the antebellum-style house where she lived for many years are musts for fans. You’ll find a replica of the Butcher’s Hollow house, where Loretta grew up, as well as a simulated coal mine. At the Grist Mill Museum visitors will be able to view Lynn’s extensive doll collection, and a Wild West town offers plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment.

RV grounds, cabin rentals, and tent camping are available, but if you want to feel like a star, you could reserve Loretta’s deluxe tour bus (featured in the movie of her life) for the night. There are also frequent special events, such as concerts, trail rides, cross-country racing, and the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motorcross Championship.

Open Mar.–Oct. Admission charged.

Some people like to travel by train because 
it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of 
an airplane.
