FLASHBACK: Watch Loretta Lynn Bring Country to the ‘Muppet Show’

Bet y’all forgot about that time country music queen Loretta Lynn graced the Muppet Show stage!

Okay ladies and gentlemen, here she is, the most talented and cooperative of guest stars, Miss Loretta Lynn!” said Kermit the Frog in Episode 306 of the popular variety program “The Muppet Show.” It was 1978 and Loretta Lynn was a stunning vision dressed in a daffodil yellow dress as she sang her hit “You’re Looking’ at Country.”

The Muppet Show ran from 1976 to 1981 in its original format and had a celebrity guest on each episode. In this episode, the Muppet theatre is being fumigated, so they are forced to play the show from the train station, where they are frequently interrupted by passing trains.
