The Grand Ole Opry returns to the Grand Ole Opry House this weekend after their annual winter run at the Ryman Auditorium. There is one show on Friday night and one show on Saturday night.
Jimmy Dickens is scheduled to return after a two week absence from the Opry and George Hamilton IV will be celebrating his 50th anniversary as an Opry member on Saturday's show. Other highlights include the Oak Ridge Boys, Josh Turner and Sandi Patty.
I will be in Nashville this weekend attending both the Friday and Saturday night shows along with the Midnight Jamboree. When I return on Monday, I will update everyone with what I saw and heard.
Here are the line-ups:
Friday February 5
7:00: Riders In The Sky(host); Jim Ed Brown; The Whites
7:30: Jimmy Dickens(host); Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top X-Press; Chris Young
8:00: Bill Anderson(host); Connie Smith; Keith Anderson
8:30: Mike Snider(host); Stonewall Jackson; Jack Greene; Josh Turner
Saturday February 6
7:00: Jimmy Dickens(host); Jeannie Seely; Chris Young
7:30: Mike Snider(host); Jean Shepard; George Hamilton IV
8:00: Jim Ed Brown(host); Jimmy C. Newman; Sandi Patty; Opry Square Dancers
8:30: Bill Anderson(host); Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys; Oak Ridge Boys
Not a terrible line-up, although you would like to see more than 13 artists on Friday night and 12 on Saturday night. Originally, Dailey & Vincent, John Conlee and Del McCoury Band were listed as being scheduled to appear. Those three artists would have made this line-up even better.
Have a great weekend!!!!!
