Friday, April 14 was a special night at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville as Loretta Lynn celebrated her 85th birthday with a small on-stage party during one of two sold-out shows.

During the festivities, Lynn was joined on stage by Martina McBride who brought her roses and joined the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday."  Martina and Loretta then performed Lynn's country classic “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)” and “I Saw the Light."

Happy Birthday, Loretta Lynn!

Beyond honored to be asked to present @lorettalynnofficial with roses and lead the crowd in singing happy birthday to her. THEN she asked me to sing something! We sang You Ain't Woman Enough and I Saw The Light. I absolutely and completely adore her. She is a trailblazer, original, one-of-a-kind living legend. And it blows me away that she calls me her friend. #soblessed
