Grand Ole Opry Line-up 4/30 & 5/1--Updated

The Opry did fill out it's line-up for this weekend with Mandy Barnett and Chris Scruggs.

The Grand Ole Opry has posted the line-up for this weekend's shows. The Opry is back to just one show this Saturday night. Here are the line-ups:

Friday April 30
7:00: John Conlee(host); Jimmy C. Newman; The Grascals
7:30: Jimmy Dickens(host); George Hamilton IV; Sarah Buxton
8:00: Jim Ed Brown(host); Jack Greene; The Band Perry
8:30: Mike Snider(host); Connie Smith; Mandy Barnett

Saturday May 1
7:00: The Whites(host); Connie Smith The Grascals
7:30: Mike Snider(host); Ray Pillow; Blaine Larsen
8:15: Jeannie Seely(host); Jesse McReynolds & The Virginia Boys; Chris Scruggs; Opry Square Dancers
8:45: Bill Anderson(host); Jan Howard; Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top X-Press; Mandy Barnett

There are still a couple of spots to fill on each of the shows. Also, Sarah Buxton will be at the Opry shop on Friday night, signing autographs of her CD. The Grascals are hosting the Midnight Jamboree on Saturday night at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop.

There is good variety on both shows, but just my opinion, it is not one of their stronger line-ups.


  1. Making matters worse, it now shows on the website that Saturday night, there will be an intermission. Shameful.

    I note that The Potato is listed Friday night but not afterward, so I wonder if he might be traveling again.

  2. I still just don't get why an intermission on Saturday night when there is just one show, but no intermission on the Saturday night with two shows.

    Of course, I just don't get the intermission thing at all.
