Country Music Hall of Fame member Loretta Lynn, continuing her return to an active career, begins a new tour on Saturday with a concert at Billy Bob's Texas, the Fort Worth nightclub that bills itself as the world's largest honky-tonk.
Lynn, returning to the spotlight after several years away to deal with a string of family tragedies, last year released her first new album in more than a decade, Still Country. The disc features the new single "I Can't Hear the Music" (RealAudio excerpt), about the 1996 death of her husband of 48 years, Oliver V. "Mooney" Lynn.
