There's a new rally coming to Tennessee but this one has no ties to the beleaguered Nashville Bike Week. The Loretta Lynn Ranch has announced it will host a five-day music festival and motorcycle rally this fall on the grounds of the Ranch.
The Tennessee Motorcycle and Music Revival will be held Sept. 28-Oct. 1 in Hurricane Mills and will feature "Loretta’s Ride for Mission 22," a charity ride that benefits Mission 22, an organization that provides treatment programs for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries while raising awareness on the issue of veteran suicide.
“We’ve been having motorcycles here forever with the AMA and all year long thousands of people riding in to camp at the Ranch. This is what we do here and I’m so excited for this new one to happen,” Lynn said in a news release.
Organizers are stressing this event is in no way connected to the Nashville Bike Week which at one time was set to be held at the venue. The promoter for that event has been arrested on unrelated charges and the future of NBW is in doubt.
More information including band and musician line-ups, music and motorcycle-related entertainment and displays, vendors and craftsmen, ride maps, Loretta’s Mission 22 Charity Ride and additional event features will be announced soon.
