While the 89-year-old doesn’t share a lot on social media, she couldn’t resist taking to Twitter this month to pay tribute to country star Carly Pearce.

Carly recently joined the legendary Grand Ole Opry after Dolly Parton extended the coveted invitation to her, and Loretta couldn’t have been happier.

Even before I heard @carlypearce singing her song “Dear Miss Loretta”, I knew she was going to be a big star. Nobody loves the @opry more than me and I’m proud they made her part of the family.#GrandOleOpry #StillWomanEnough #DearMissLoretta #NeverRetire

Loretta Lynn is a country legend

Carly was surprised by Dolly earlier in the month, believing that she was filming a promo for the star’s Dollywood amusement park, where the singer once performed as a teenager before heading to Nashville.

A video clip captured the moment Carly was asked to become a member, with Dolly coming out to surprise the singer, while jokingly teasing her about playing at the Opry more than 80 times, but still not being a member.

When Dolly told her the news, Carly was overcome with emotion and burst into happy tears. Carly said of the news: “It’s been the greatest love of my life since I was a young girl listening with my grandparents.

The award-winning star is also a member of the Opry

“All of the greatest writers, legends and pioneers have been on that stage, and I feel them in my bones anytime I walk in the stage door… To actually be asked to join the Opry family, there are no words.”

Loretta herself is no stranger to the Opry and made her debut there in 1960. The 89-year-old is self-made star and is one of the Opry’s most celebrated legends.

The singer became the first female artist to win the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year award in 1972 and is a member of the Country Music and Songwriters Hall of Fame. She also received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.
