Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant has earned the reputation as “America’s Most Photographed Plantation” – a place NBC Daytime Television says is “a must see on any trip to Charleston.”
The plantation is one of the premier attractions in the South Carolina Lowcountry drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors annually from all over the world to take in over three centuries of history, beauty, and grace. Now, the reputation of being one of the most unique concert venues you will find anywhere can be added to this southern plantation’s distinguished resume.
Boone Hall Plantation has been a home for quality concerts for many years. The beautiful back lawn provides the perfect setting and a natural amphitheater where concert goers can relax and enjoy a spectacular evening of music under the stars.
Loretta Lynn, the “rule breakin’ record setting queen of country music” for over 50 years, continues to entertain audiences worldwide with her distinctive style that broke new ground and set new standards for the music industry.
On Friday Aug. 22, this one-and-only show business icon will be performing all her legendary songs in concert at Boone Hall Plantation.
It’s a good fit. Boone Hall is a southern icon, known for its history, beauty, and distinguished southern style, and those attributes could also be used to define in part Loretta Lynn’s life and legendary career. And she is still going strong, keeping some of the most original sounds of country music alive each time she takes the stage.
Here’s a special bonus for the concert goers on the day of the Loretta Lynn show. Complimentary admission to tour Boone Hall Plantation is included with the purchase of a concert ticket.
