Tuesday Night Opry-December 15

Here is the line-up for the final Tuesday Night Opry show of the year, December 15, at the Ryman Auditorium

7:00: Jeannie Seely; Jimmy Wayne
7:30: Terri Clark; Darryl Worley
8:15: Bill Anderson; Chris Young
8:45: Jimmy Dickens; Jamey Johnson

Also, on a different note, Marty Stuart returns for his 2nd year of The Marty Stuart Show, on the RFD network, starting next Saturday December 19. Connie Smith returns as does LeRoy Troy. Should be another great year as I always found his show entertaining.

And, Bill Anderson reports that he and Larry Black have been going over the tapes of his old television show, The Bill Anderson Show, and are just about finished putting them in to DVD format and that he hopes to have them on sale later in 2010. I would also hope that they would eventually show up on RFD-TV. He also has completed his latest book and should have it out after the first of the year.


  1. It is great to hear that Marty will be back with all the regulars for some new shows. Sounds like he has a great guest list lined up also. I feel that he is really cementing his legacy in Country Music with these fine shows.

    Nice to see Bill Anderson's shows finally come out on dvd also. It seems that there is a hunger growing for some real authentic Country Music lately. Let's hope so. It sure beats the artificial entertainment being shoved down our throats by others.

    Thank God for RFD-TV! We should all get behind and support the good things these fine folks are doing so that it might be around for a long time and not taken from us again.

  2. I don't get RFD-TV where I live, but sometimes have access to it when I travel, and it is wonderful.

  3. I'm enjoying Larry Black's Country Diner shows on RFD. They had a great one with Ed Bruce. I had not seen Ed Bruce on TV in years. He still sounds great and looks about the same. Wish they'd have him on the Opry again. He used to work the Opry a lot when he was big. Another show that was good, was on a couple of weeks ago with Gordon Mote, who worked in Porter Wagoner's band as a piano player for a couple of years. He does a spot-on Porter Wagoner impersonation. Interesting, the announcer on these Country Diner shows is Keith Bilbrey.
