Here is the line-up for Opry Country Classics, at the Ryman Auditorium on Thursday May 27

Spotlight Artist: John Anderson
Also Appearing: Rhett Akins, David Frizzell, Opry Square Dancers, Shelly West, Chris Young.
Just a couple of comments:
>I find it interesting that David Frizzell and Shelly West are not scheduled together. I would assume that they would sing a duet or two.
>How can you have an Opry sponsored show and not have an Opry member on it? I just don't get it. There are 66 current members and Pete Fisher could not find one of them who could or would appear on the show? I find this totally unacceptable! And when I think of classic artists, I think of folks like Jimmy Dickens, Ray Price, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Bill Anderson, Jim Ed Brown, etc. (I think you get the idea). I don't think of any of those listed for this show.
Come on Grand Ole Opry. If you are going to have an Opry show, let's get some members appearing and if you are going to call the show a "classics" show, let's feature some classic country music performers.
