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.
