In honor of Loretta Lynn’s 87th birthday on April 14, a number of artists took part in her All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on April 1, including Alan Jackson, Brandy Clark, Darius Rucker, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Jack White, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Margo Price, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies, Trisha Yearwood and more.
But Keith Urban took the cake.
As Cam led the crowd in a rendition of “Happy Birthday,” a three-tiered cake—which was fake—was wheeled onto stage. As the song concluded, Keith sprang from the cake, fulfilling Loretta’s tongue-in-cheek birthday wish.
A little backstory: When the concert was announced in January, Lorreta said, “I am so excited to celebrate my 87th birthday with all my friends. This is the first time I’ve ever had a birthday party! My birthday wish has come true. The only other wish I have is that Keith Urban jumps out of my birthday cake!”
After Nash Country Daily posted Loretta’s wish via Twitter, Keith Urban responded by saying: “
@lorettalynn… your wish is always my command Miss Loretta!!!! – KU.”
