Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty to be saluted by their grandchildren in a Red Deer concert

The Nov. 29 show is at the Memorial Centre

Musical tribute will be paid to Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn by their performing grandchildren in a classic country concert this month at the Memorial Centre.

Tre Twitty and Tayla Lynn will sing many of the tunes their grandparents made famous in the 1970s and 1980s in A Salute to Conway and Loretta, on Nov. 29.

Conway Twitty dominated the charts with a remarkable 55 No. 1 singles throughout his career — including Hello Darlin’, Next in Line, and You’ve Never Been this Far Before.

Loretta Lynn also produced a slew of chart-toppers, such as You Ain’t Woman Enough (to Take my Man), Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind), and Coal Miner’s Daughter (which was the title of a biopic made about Lynn’s life, starring Sissy Spacek).

Together, the two country superstars paired up to create five duets that also climbed to the No. 1 spot on the charts: After the Fire is Gone, Lead Me On, Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man, As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone, and Feelin’s.

Tre and Tayla will perform their own versions of many of these enduring songs, in loving tribute to their grandparents.

Their performances won’t be impersonations — Tre Twitty has stated he considers the show a celebration of his grandfather’s life and music, which he intends to deliver in a heartfelt way, interspersed with stories of Conway’s life.

“Tayla and I knew there was a big audience for our grandparents’ music, and I thought it would be neat to talk about them, for our perspective,” he said in an interview with a Saskatchewan media outlet.

“We went out and did a couple of shows and people just… loved the music so much.”

The duo will create a 1970s retro vibe for the show, which will open with Dave Pittet performing a tribute to Waylon Jennings.
