Update #2-Both shows are sold out for Tuesday night. Good to see that with CMA Music Fest in town that people are willing to venture out to Briley Parkway to see the Opry. The line ups are very strong for both shows. Interesting that Jimmy Dickens is only doing the 1st show, while the rest of the line up is doing both shows.
Update #1-Jim Ed Brown was added on for Friday night.
With the Memorial Day weekend behind us, the Opry moves into its summer season. It used to be that when Opryland was open, there would be 2 shows each Friday and Saturday night through the summer and into September. And each show was 2 and a half hours long. Now with no real draw for the tourists in Nashville, we have just 1 show on Friday night and 1 show on Saturday night.
The Friday Night Opry will feature Marty Stuart returning to the Opry stage, along with Aaron Tippin along with Jeff and Sherri Easter. Saturday night will feature superstar group, Rascal Flatts, along with Jimmy Wayne and Elizabeth Cook. Both nights will feature bluegrass great Ralph Stanley.
Friday June 3:
7:00 John Conlee(host); Mike Snider; Jean Shepard; Emily West
7:30 Jimmy Dickens(host); Jesse McReynolds; Jeff and Sheri Easter
8:15 Bill Anderson(host); The Whites; Aaron Tippin
8:45 Marty Stuart(host); Connie Smith; Jim Ed Brown; Ralph Stanley

The Tuesday Night Opry on June 7 will help to usher in the CMA Music Festival, which will run in Nashville through the weekend. Besides the Music Fest, Marty Stuart will have his late night jam at the Ryman Auditorium, and there are super line ups at the Friday and Saturday night Opry shows next weekend. In addition, the Opry will also have a Saturday matinee.
As you will see, the line up for the Tuesday Night Opry is loaded and there are 2 shows
7:00: Jimmy Dickens; Darius Rucker
7:30: Jerrod Niemann; Martina McBride
8:00: Oak Ridge Boys; Lady Antebellum
8:30: Bill Anderson; Carrie Underwood
9:30: Martina McBride; Lady Antebellum
10:00: Darius Rucker; Carrie Underwood
10:30: Bill Anderson; Jerrod Niemann; Oak Ridge Boys
Interesting that the Oak Ridge Boys are closing out the Tuesday night show.
And finally, the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree on Saturday night/Sunday morning, will be hosted by Jett Williams and appearing with her will be David Frizzell, Razzy Bailey and Jeremy Parsons. That should be a great show.
