I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing Steve Martin on the Opry. He has a great new banjo CD out called "The Crow", and he should really be entertaining. The Opry is back to 2 shows on Saturday night and the line-up for both shows is really strong. There also is some variety between the 2 shows. Friday has a solid line-up also. I would imagine that the Saturday shows will be sold-out. Finally, the host of the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree this weekend is Daily & Vincent, about the hottest act in bluegrass music right now. A very talented duo with deep roots in bluegrass, they were the bluegrass entertainers of the year in 2008.
