Grand Ole Opry Line-up 4/3 & 4/4

Here are the Grand Ole Opry line-ups for this coming weekend:
Friday April 3:
7:00: Diamond Rio(host); Jimmy C Newman; Jean Shepard; Del McCoury Band.
7:30: Jimmy Dickens(host); Connie Smith.
8:00: Bill Anderson(host); Mike Snider; Aaron Tippin.
8:30: Ricky Skaggs(host); Riders In The Sky; The Whites.

Kind of a skinny line-up for the Friday show. A couple of the highlights would include Diamond Rio and Ricky Skaggs. Also, nice to see Aaron Tippin back at the Opry. I saw him when he made an appearance at the Opry the first part of February and he has a new CD of truck driving songs, including Six Days On The Road, East Bound And Down and Girl On The Billboard. He does a great job with all of those songs.

Saturday April 4:
First Show:
7:00: Jimmy Dickens(host); The Whites; Del McCoury Band.
7:30: Mike Snider(host); Mel McDaniel; Jean Shepard.
8:00: Jeannie Seely(host); Jim Ed Brown; Michael Martin Murphey; Opry Square Dancers.
8:30: Bill Anderson(host); Jimmy C Newman; Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys; Joe Diffie.

Second Show:
9:30: Jimmy Dickens(host); Connie Smith; Del McCoury Band.
10:00: Mike Snider(host); Stonewall Jackson; Jean Shepard.
10:30: Jeannie Seely(host); Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top Express; Opry Square Dancers.
11:00: Bill Anderson(host); Jim Ed Brown; Michael Martin Murphey.

Nice to see Joe Diffie back making an appearance on Saturday night along with Michael Martin Murphey, who seems to make it up to the Opry now and then. Also, some bluegrass flavor on Saturday with Del McCoury, Jesse McReynolds and Bobby Osborne. Not too bad of a line-up with some nice variety. Also on Saturday night, Michael Martin Murphey will be the host of the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree. I am sure he will sing many, many cowboy and western songs and the price is right. It's free!!!

  1. I think it was just this morning that Suzy Bogguss was added to the Friday night lineup in the segment hosted by Jimmy Dickens (who I refer to as The Potato in honor of Hank Snow, who called him that).
