A memorial for late country legend Loretta Lynn will air on CMT later this month and include performances from such superstars as George Strait, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, and more.

The event titled, “Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Loretta Lynn,” is being put on by CMT and Sandbox Productions in partnership with the Lynn’s family.

“We are truly honored to work closely alongside Loretta’s family to create a celebration of life fit for a true queen of country music, Loretta Lynn,” a statement from CMT producers read.

“She was a true original, a woman who always sang from her heart, never shied away from challenging the status quo and blazed the path forward for her fellow female artists,” the statement added. “From her firecracker spirit and signature musicality to her unmistakable country style and unparalleled authenticity, we look forward to honoring her in the best way we know how: sharing stories and songs with her family, friends and the legions of fans she loved dearly.”

The evening’s event will be hosted by NBC’s “Today” show co-host Jenna Bush Hager, with performances and appearances from country star Barbara Mandrell, Lynn’s sister and singer Crystal Gayle, Darius Rucker, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Tanya Tucker, and so many more artists to be announced later, the statement noted.

The “You Ain’t Woman Enough” hitmaker died on October 4 at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, as The Daily Wire previously reported. She was 90.

Lynn was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988, after becoming a breakout star in the country music industry. She’s probably best known for her 1970 hit inspired by her Kentucky roots, “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Lynn’s husband of 48 years, Oliver Lynn, died in 1996. She is survived by her daughters Patsy Lynn Russell, Peggy Lynn, Clara (Cissie) Marie Lynn, and her son Ernest Ray Lynn, as well as her many grandchildren and her great-grandchildren, the website noted.
