We'll, I am back from the big Grand Ole Opry birthday celebration and I will share my thoughts on what I saw and heard in a column tomorrow. But for tonight, I wanted to post the line-ups for this week's mid-week Opry shows.
Tuesday Night Opry-October 13th:
7:00: Jim Ed Brown; Wade Bowen
7:30: Connie Smith; The Steeldrivers
8:15: Bill Anderson; Jamie O'Neal
8:45: Jimmy Dickens; Justin Moore
Opry Country Classics-Thursday October 15th:
This Week: Celebrating Rockabilly
Host: Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives
Also Appearing: Shawn Camp & Billy Burnette; John Conlee; Eric Heatherly; Rebecca Lynn Howard; Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys; Jimmy C. Newman; Opry Square Dancers
My only comment regarding the Opry Country Classics show is that the theme is Rockabilly, and while Jesse McReynolds and Jimmy C. Newman are fine artists and singers, I do not remember either of them having anything to do with rockabilly. Also, the last I heard of Eric Heatherly was when he had his one and only hit, the remake of the Statler Brothers classic: Flowers on the Wall. He was a one hit wonder.
