Just a note, although not really Grand Ole Opry related. Kitty Wells will be the guest on Saturday night's Marty Stuart show on RFD-TV. His show airs at 8:00 in the East and is replayed on Sunday.
Kitty makes very rare appearances anymore so this is a treat for all of her fans. If I remember right, the show was taped either in mid February or the first of April, so it is very recent. (I don't remember the exact date, but I remember on one of my trips to Nashville, they were advertising the taping for that week and offering tickets to the taping). I could kick myself for not staying for it, but I had to get back to town.
I will be watching and I am sure others will be also. This may be the last time we see an appearance by her on network television.
