This week, the Tuesday Night Opry will be at the Ryman Auditorium. For the 2nd week in a row, only 7 artists are listed on the schedule. I don't know if that is just the way it worked out or if management has decided that 7 artists is enough for the Tuesday night show.
Here is the line-up for the Tuesday Night Opry, April 20
7:00-8:00: John Conlee; Wade Hayes; Jean Shepard; Aaron Tippin
8:15-9:15: Bill Anderson; Jimmy Dickens; Craig Morgan
My only assumption is that as the "headliner" for this show, Craig Morgan will get an opportunity to perform longer. We shall see.
Here is the line-up for Opry Country Classics on Thursday April 22
Host: Larry Gatlin
Spotlight Artist: Pam Tillis
Also Appearing: Andy Griggs; Rebecca Lynn Howard; Opry Square Dancers; Eddy Raven; Ronny Robbins; Rhonda Vincent
The Thursday show is definitely the stronger of the two mid-week shows this week.
