Scenic Lincoln Co., KY: Howard Theater, Crab Orchard

2012-07-10 - Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co., KY - Photo by Kenny Browning, The Feedman. The Howard Theater, Crab Orchard, KY. Built in 1947 the theater looks to have been restored from its outward appearance. It is located in Crab Orchard, KY on KY 39 , the main drag for the town. I was surprised to find that many famous entertainers had performed there including Loretta Lynn, the Osborne Brothers, the father of Bluegrass Bill Monroe, Conway Twitty, Homer Harrison and his trained horse, and Jerry Lee Lewis who stated on CMT that it was one of the roughest places he performed. The youngest act to perform in the theater was country singer John Michael Montgomery at the age of 5. He was booked in the theater by his father, Harold Montgomery.
