After being off the air due to some technical difficulties, we are back on and we have the Opry line up for this weekend. The Opry continues with one show on Friday night and one show on Saturday night.
The Friday Night Opry features Dailey & Vincent making another appearance at the Opry. Why they are not members yet, I do not know. Also appearing on Friday will be The Derailers and Old Crow Medicine Show. Jesse McReynolds is also scheduled and again he is listed without the Virginia Boys. I did notice on last week's show, it was just Jesse by himself without his group. I hope this is by choice and not the Opry's management forcing him to cut back on his group.
Saturday nights show has Opry member Charlie Daniels returning. Other than that, you have The Bowling Family guesting, along with Joey+Rory. Not a particularly strong show.
Friday May 13
7:00: Jeannie Seely (host); Jesse McReynolds; The Derailers
7:30: Jimmy Dickens (host); Jimmy C. Newman; Old Crow Medicine Show
8:15: Bill Anderson (host); Bobby Osborne & Rocky Top X-Press; Elizabeth Cook

7:30: Riders In The Sky (host); The Whites; The Bowling Family
8:15: Mike Snider (host); Jack Greene; Joey+Rory; Opry Square Dancers

And, just for those who might have missed the line up from Thursday night's Opry Country Classics show at the Ryman Auditorium:
Host: Bill Cody
Spotlight Artist: Pam Tillis
Also Appearing: Bobby Bare; Rebecca Lynn Howard; Jim Lauderdale; Ray Pillow; T.G. Sheppard
Not a bad line up for the Thursday night show. Actually, anything with Bobby Bare is probably pretty good.
Finally, the host for this weeks Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree is Ron Williams.
