Here is this week's Grand Ole Opry line-up:

Second Show
9:30: Jimmy Dickens(host); The Whites; Jamie O'Neal

10:30: Jim Ed Brown(host); Jimmy C. Newman; David Nail; Opry Square Dancers
11:00: Jeannie Seely(host); Billy Yates; Wynonna

What is interesting is that both Saturday shows have the same artists. Usually there is a variation of at least several. Also, Steve Wariner will be hosting the Ernest Tubb Record Shop Midnight Jamboree after the Opry. It will be a CD release party for his new tribute CD honoring Chet Atkins.


  1. I've also noticed that some of the bigger-name guests--as in Wynonna--over the years have done the 8:30 and 9:30 shows to reduce their time at the Opry. I like the idea that maybe Wynonna wants to hang out backstage!

  2. I have noticed that also. It is like they want the final segment of the first show and the first segment of the second show.I also have noticed that the Opry tries to schedule a bigger name star in the last segment of the shows. I think it is just one of their ways to keep the audience around. When at the Opry, I get a chuckle everytime when during the final segment of the show, after the last artist performs prior to the commerical and the host singing the final song, that there is a mass exit, especially of the senior citizens and members of the tour groups. Sometimes the host will make a sarcastic comment about the people leaving. It seems to me that you pay good money to see the show, you should stay to see it all.
