Loretta Lynn’s October event will bring together motorcyclists, musicians and festival goers
Hurricane Mills, Tenn., May 9—Tickets and camping for the 2018 edition of the four-day Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival are on sale exclusively at www.MotorcyclesAndMusic.com. The Revival is all about motorcycles, music, comradery and the outdoors. It is held at the sprawling Loretta Lynn Ranch owned by one of the most legendary country artists ever to play the world stage, Loretta Lynn.
Bridging the worlds of motorcycles and music, the Revival features custom builders and musicians you may already know and some on the edge that You Need to Know. “A perfect blend of artistry… motorcycles and music!” shared Thunder Press after attending the event last year.
Whiskey Myers, Tim Montana, Blackfoot Gypsies, The Steel Woods, Tayla Lynn & Shelly Fairchild’s Honky Tonk Circus, True Villains, Stone Senate, Heathen Sons, The Steel Union and many more will hit Loretta’s stage in Hurricane Mills Oct 4-7. The bands cover the gamut of southern rock, country, red dirt, outlaw country, and no-nonsense rock ’n’ roll bringing to the airwaves Tennessee’s state motto “Soundtrack of America.”
Recognized by industry insiders as “the event to watch,” the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival features the BC Moto Invitational—a unique custom bike show, hillbilly flat track racing, rodeos and motorcycle games, Rhett Rotten’s Wall of Death, stunt riders, vendors and exhibitors including demo trucks from Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles, hot air balloon rides, Royal Range shooting range, Loretta’s Ride for USO and loads of music. Along with the band line-up at Loretta’s Roadhouse each night, live music is around the clock with singer-songwriter rounds and acoustic performances with bluegrass, outlaw country and blues being played at midnight next to nightly bonfires alongside Hurricane Creek. Full liquor bars and Nashville specialty food trucks give event goers plenty of options to get their drink on and high-quality, exciting cuisines to dine.
The 2017 TMMR received accolades from participants and media across the country including Loretta Lynn herself, “I love having y’all here at the Ranch and hope you enjoy this place as much as I do. We enjoy having motorcycles here and I love you all!” Rolling Stone Magazine, along with the entire country music scene, shared the event and Loretta Lynn’s return to the stage after suffering from a stroke last spring. The beloved Loretta Lynn performed to a patriotic audience of motorcycle riders at the Military Tribute Day where she put on an incredibly touching and often humorous performance. This year, Loretta’s Ride will benefit the USO, an organization which she has worked with over her entire career.
TMMR sponsor Jeff Crotty of Lucas Oil and a veteran event promoter shared, “While no one can predict the future success of any event of this nature, we believe the potential is present for TMMR to become the premier event in the motorcycle and music arena and thus, provide a conduit to promote the Lucas Oil Products message.” Nashville Scene, the go-to entertainment guide in the Music City, chose the event as it’s Critics’ Pick amidst a sea of events and countless media and supporters shared that they believe this event has more growth possibilities than any other event in the entire state of Tennessee.
People from all over the world travel to Tennessee to ride and for good reason. “Known for its music, the state of Tennessee also offers some of the best riding roads and scenery in America specializing in lush forests, abundant bodies of water, and breathtaking mountains resulting in some truly great motorcycle rides,” shares MotorcycleRoads.com. Not far from Loretta’s Ranch are the music cities of Nashville and Memphis as well popular rides such as the Natchez Trace Parkway and America’s #1 motorcycle and sports car road with 318 turns on 11 miles, the “Tail of the Dragon.”
