The Grand Ole Opry has released the line-ups for their mid-week shows. For the Tuesday Night Opry on March 31st, scheduled to appear are Riders in the Sky; Danielle Peck; Gene Watson; Exile; Connie Smith; The Grascals; Bill Anderson; Darryl Worley. Overall, a pretty fair line-up with a nice mix of talent. Always good to see Gene Watson on an Opry show. Also, there are some who think it is just a matter of time until Darryl Worley is asked to become a member. With the recent deaths of Ernie Ashworth and Hank Locklin, there would appear to be an opening for a new male member.
The Opry Country Classics show on April 2nd will be hosted by Marty Stuart and will feature Vince Gill as the spotlight artist. Others scheduled to appear include Mandy Barnett; Rebecca Lynn Howard; Stonewall Jackson; Mel McDaniel; Stu Phillips; TG Sheppard; and Gene Watson. Overall all, in the opinion of this reporter, a solid line-up for the 2nd week in a row for the classic show.
