At an early age, perhaps due to her Kentucky roots and natural inflection, Emily Portman was told that she “sounded a lot like” country music legend, Loretta Lynn. Emily pored over the singer’s entire catalogue of music and began working to emulate Loretta’s vocal style and her onstage mannerisms. Over several decades, Portman’s portrayal of the Coal Miner’s Daughter would eventually lead her to Loretta Lynn, with whom she formed a close friendship. After Ms. Lynn’s unfortunate recent passing, Portman connected with Loretta’s longtime backup band, The Coalminers. They agreed to join talents and collaborate to honor the memory and music of this true country music trail blazer with “Always Loretta” – a show authorized by the Loretta Lynn family that includes all the greatest hits and shares intimate stories of Loretta’s life through the eyes of those who knew her best.

The dictionary defines harmony as “a combination of musical sounds considered to be pleasing.” The music world could define harmony as “The Lettermen.” For more than 60 years, The Lettermen – Donovan Tea, Bobby Poynton, and Rob Gulack – have kept the meaning of harmony alive with their soft, romantic blend of music. The Lettermen have over 75 albums and a myriad of hits including “The Way You Look Tonight,” “When I Fall in Love,” “Theme From A Summer Place,” “Goin’ Out of My Head/Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” “Hurt So Bad,” and “Shangri-La.”

One of the most successful groups in the wave of ‘60s sunshine pop, The Association have sold millions of records, tapes, CDs, and DVDs as well as earned a number of achievements including seven Grammy nominations and a Golden Globe nomination in 1970 for Best Original Song – “Goodbye Columbus.” The group’s smooth harmonies and pop-oriented sound made them regular occupants of the highest reaches of the pop charts for several years. Their biggest hits include “Windy,” “Never My Love,” “Time for Livin’,” “Everything That Touches You,” “Along Comes Mary,” and “Cherish.”
