Here is the line-up for this week's Tuesday Night Opry, April 27th.
7:00: Riders In The Sky; Bucky Covington
7:30: Cherryholmes; Danny Gokey
8:15: Bill Anderson; Jewel
8:45: The Whites; Blake Shelton

It is one of their stronger Tuesday night line-ups, and it has a lot of appeal to the younger fans.

Here is the line-up for this week's Opry Country Classics, Thursday April 29th, at the Ryman Auditorium.
Host: Nan Kelley
Spotlight Artist: Steve Wariner
Also Appearing: Gail Davies; George Hamilton IV; Opry Square Dancers; Stu Phillips; Chris Scruggs; Leroy Van Dyke; Emily West.

Yes, you read it right, the great Leroy Van Dyke will be on Opry Country Classics this week. Leory had a couple of the greatest hits in country music history, with "The Auctioneer" and "Walk On By." I think that it has been years since he has been on the Opry. I know I saw him on one of my visits. What a treat for the fans. Stu Phillips is also scheduled. He has cancelled his last couple of appearances and I know that on his last Opry visit, he sounded pretty bad. Hopefully, whatever was ailing him is behind him. This looks like it could be a pretty good show.


  1. I saw Leroy Van Dyke (and my fave Connie Smith)at the Florida State Fair a while back and he was as good as ever. I know this is a broken record but what does age have to do with radio air play!!! These guys have lost nothing over time.

  2. I hope that Opry Country Classics will provide a venue to welcome back former Opry members like Leroy Van Dyke, much as the "Homecoming" shows did in the 1970s and 1980s.
