Legendary Ladies of Country
This musical, crafted to make audiences’ hearts sing, features songs of love, heartbreak, family and faith. Legendary Ladies of Country is a joyous celebration of the power and resilience women discover within themselves as they travel down life’s highway of young love, marriage, heartbreak (and revenge!), and motherhood. As they come to the far end of that journey, they find they have accumulated a wellspring of wisdom to pass along to their daughters, as the unbroken circle begins all over again.
The show pays tribute to current and legendary country greats such as The Carter Family (June, Carlene and Mother Maybelle), Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Kitty Wells, Lynn Anderson, Reba McEntire, Bobbie Gentry, The Judds, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Tammy Wynette, Patty Loveless, Carrie Underwood, Loretta Lynn and the Dixie Chicks.
