Grammy®, AMA, ACM and CMA award winning country music singer and Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle was recently announced as the headlining act for the re-opening of the renovated Eagles Theatre in her hometown of Wabash, Indiana. The show on Saturday, February 29 sold out in minutes and a second show has been added on Sunday, March 1st. The performances kick off a variety of entertainment for the month of March.

Born in Paintsville, Ky. and raised in Wabash, Ind., Crystal grew up singing in school choirs, for civic organizations, and with her brothers’ country bands. Her first record was released when she graduated from Wabash High School. A few years and several country hits later, Crystal became an international star with her GRAMMY-winning recording for “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.”

Crystal has been honored with a star on the fabled Hollywood Walk of Fame and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry by sister Loretta Lynn. The Academy of Country Music recognized Crystal with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award for her lifetime achievements in country music.

Gayle’s recent album release titled You Don’t Know Me revisits country music standards that held special significance to Gayle in her youth and early career.

“This wasn’t a stretch at all,” said Gayle. “These are songs I grew up singing and they are very much a part of my history.”

“I always love coming back home to Wabash to see family and friends. I’m so excited to be a part of the re-opening of the Eagles Theatre,” said Gayle. “Movies at the Eagles are wonderful memories from my childhood.”

The newly-renovated Eagles Theatre will host a series of events in celebration of re-opening after a two-year renovation project. These special preview performances and movies will offer guests the opportunity to explore the fully-renovated lobby and upgraded Eagles Theatre, which features additional new seating, lighting, and sound. A First Fridays tour event will open up the transformed lower level and upper floors as well.

All performances are on sale now with tickets available at EaglesTheatre.com or by calling the Honeywell Foundation box office at 260-563-1102.
