It will be interesting to see if Jimmy Dickens and his voice will be able to hold out for all 3 shows. Also, it sure is nice to see no intermission on the Saturday night shows. It makes the show flow go much better.
Tonight, Opry Country Classics will honor Loretta Lynn as the spotlight artist. This show will also be at the Grand Ole Opry House.

I will be in Nashville for the Opry birthday celebration next week. I plan on talking to lots of folks and getting a good look at the Opry House. It should be a great weekend.
