The Opry has filled out their line-up for this weekend:
The Grand Ole Opry has posted the preliminary line-ups for this weekends shows. I say preliminary because over the past couple of weeks there have been some last minute cancellations and also the schedule still has a couple of slots to fill.
This weekend's Opry shows will take place at Two Rivers Baptist Church, which is across Briley Parkway from the Opry House. Two Rivers Baptist Church was the site of the funeral of Ernest Tubb, which took place on September 10, 1984. 1500 people attended the services that day. The pallbearers included Bill Monroe, Cal Smith, Carl Smith, Hank Williams, Jr., Teddy Wilburn, Carl Butler, Jack Greene, Billy Parker, Junior Pruneda, Porter Wagoner, and Ernest's brother C.R. Tubb, Jr. Among the stars who attended the funeral were Roy Acuff, B.J. Thomas, Jimmy Dickens Kitty Wells, Billy Walker, Hank Snow, George Hamilton IV, Jim Ed Brown, Connie Smith, Lorrie Morgan, Charlie Walker and Jeannie Seely. Bill Monroe and B.J. Thomas sang at the service. A number of Ernest Tubb songs were also played.
