This weekend, Nashville pays tribute to the coal miner's daughter — Loretta Lynn.

Lynn — a Country Music Hall of Fame artist who chronicled hard-earned life lessons in trendsetting songs — died Oct. 4 at age 90. Friends, family and longtime listeners gather Sunday in Music City for a night of singing and stories featuring those who knew her best and appreciated her music the most.

They'll congregate at the Grand Ole Opry House, a spiritual home for the genre Lynn helped shape.

Read on for a look at who's performing and how to watch "Coal Miner's Daughter: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Loretta Lynn."
