Country legend Loretta Lynn played a lively set during her Thursday night South By Southwest showcase at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin.

The 83-year-old singer took the stage in her bright red, sequined dress, and spent most of the set taking fan requests, according to Billboard. “Well, whatever you wanna hear, holler it out,” Lynn told audience members. “If I don’t know it, you can come up here and sing it yourself.”

At one point during the 40-minute set, Lynn had a request for her gospel song “Everybody Wants To Get To Heaven,” but the band accidentally started the wrong song. “Y’all better listen to me or you’re gonna be playing for somebody else next week,” Lynn joked to her band.
