Tickets available for upcoming YC concert events slated for May<BR>
Two new concert events are coming to Yavapai College in May – country music legend Loretta Lynn on May 7 and comedian/actor Bill Engvall on May 30.
Since the 1960s and her rise from Butcher Holler, Ky., to the top of the country music charts, Loretta Lynn has warmed the hearts of audiences with her personable and engaging style.
Her first hit, "Honkey Tonk Girl," in 1960, was followed by a long list of straight-talking, from-the-hip hits such as "Success," "The Pill," "You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man" and "I Can't Love You Enough," to name a few.
National Public Radio recently named her hit song, "Coal Miner's Daughter," as one of the 100 most important American music works in all genres of music – one of only eight country songs to make the list.
With her latest album, "Still Country," a book, "Still Woman Enough," and sold-out shows across America in 2002-03, Loretta Lynn is still one for the ages.
Public tickets go on sale April 14.

Bill Engvall has always based his comedy on everyday events involving family, kids and animals.
But the release of his 1996 CD "Here's Your Sign" garnered him national attention and brought audiences flocking to his shows.
The album was #1 on the Billboard Comedy Chart for 15 straight weeks, peaked at number five on Billboard's Current Country Album Chart, 17 weeks in the Country Album Top 10, and reached the Top 50 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart.
Originally from Galveston, Texas, Engvall started his career in Dallas as a disc jockey, then a stand-up comic.
After moving to Los Angeles, a number of cable comedy specials and appearances on television shows such as "The Tonight Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman" earned him an award as best male stand-up from the American Comedy Awards.
