A couple of notes:
>Stonewall Jackson is on all 3 shows this weekend, which is a first for him in many years.

>Holly Williams was on the original line-up for this weekend, but cancelled.
>Little General Cloggers make their annual visit to the Opry. Nice to see that Pete Fisher has kept that tradition going. They do a fine job.
>The Carter Twins will be making their Opry debut.
>Jett Williams is the host of the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree. She usually gets to host the jamboree twice a year.
>Next week starts the CMA Music Fest, formally Fan Fair. The Opry will be putting on a few more shows next week, including 2 shows on Tuesday, a Saturday matinee and a Sunday Morning Gospel show. Also, the Marty Stuart jam will be taking place and usually there is the Opry trust fund show. Should be a great week for all the festival attendees.


  1. I wish the Opry would make it a point to include the Midnight Jamboree host in the lineup each week. It would be good cross-promotion.

  2. I agree with you. I know if the Midnight Jamboree host is on the Opry, they will usually say something about being at the Jamboree and to come on over after the Opry. I know that sometimes the host of the Jamboree is not a "name" star that the Opry would want. In the case of Jett Williams, the Opry always has her on around the 1st Saturday of the year to honor the death of Hank Williams.
