The Grand Ole Opry has posted the line ups for this weekend's shows. The Opry is back to just one show on Saturday night, and based on the attendance at last week's 2nd show, I can see why. Unless the line up is at an "A" level or if there is a good advance sale for the 1st show, it just does not make any sense in the world to go with 2 show.
Looking at this week's shows, they are pretty good, especially on Saturday night. The show that night features the return of Martina McBride to the Opry stage, along with Pam Tillis, Marty Stuart and Ricky Skaggs. Friday night's show features 15 artists, including Opry member Josh Turner, along with Paul Williams, Randy Montana and Thompson Square.
