New Opry Web-Site

In reviewing the new website, just a thought on my part: As all of you know, they have an artists section that lists all of the Opry members and many of the guest artists who visit the Opry. This section includes a short biography and a web-link for most of them.

I would love to see them add a section listing the former Opry members and a short biography on each one, including the dates that they were members. I think it would be great if newer Opry fans could read the biographies of not only the greats such as Roy Acuff, Hank Snow, Ernest Tubb, etc, but also of some of the lesser known artists such as Cousin Jody, Margie Bowes, Marion Worth and some of the others.

Just a thought.

  1. Well put. They do have a list of everyone who was a member, and that might be tough to do. But they might do Opry members in the Hall of Fame and then anyone who was a member for, say, ten years. I can't think of many entertainment programs with as much of a claim to be interested in its history as the Opry, and this would be a good way to show it.
