It has been one year since the big flood in Nashville that resulted in the relocation of the Opry until September of last year, and to remember the event, the Opry has scheduled a "big" Tuesday Night Opry show. In looking at the performers scheduled, it is really an impressive list. The only thing missing are the veteran Opry members, who continued to support the show during its relocation.
Yes, Jimmy Dickens is on the schedule, but that is it!! Where is Jean Shepard, Jeannie Seely, The Whites, Jimmy C. Newman, Jack Greene, Stonewall Jackson, Jan Howard, Mike Snider and the other great legends who support the show each week.
While there is no room for those Opry members, there is room for Luke Bryan, Cherryholmes and the Carolina Chocolate Drops, all of whom are non-Opry members. Yes, they will sell more tickets with there people on. But, come on, they could have made room for a few of the veterans. Maybe even expanded the show by a half hour to include a few.
Anyways, here is the line-up:
7:00 Luke Bryan; Cherryholmes
7:30 Jimmy Dickens; Carolina Chocolate Drops
8:15: Dierks Bentley; Trace Adkins
8:45 Charlie Daniels Band; Brad Paisley with special guest Alabama
