Grand Ole Opry Schedule 1/13 & 1/14

The Grand Ole Opry has posted the schedule for the 2 shows this weekend. 1 show on Friday night and 1 show on Saturday night, both down at the Ryman Auditorium. The shows don't look too bad for this weekend.

Friday night will feature Opry member Vince Gill. Ricky Skaggs and Del McCoury, who will also be on the Saturday night show, join him. Saturday's show will feature a return Opry appearance by non-members The Black Lillies, Katie Armiger and Rodney Atkins, who has had his share of problems lately.

After several weeks away from the Opry, Bill Anderson returns this weekend for both shows, while Jimmy Dickens will be making a personal appearance this weekend and will not be at the Opry.

  1. The Potato being away reminds me of the time Roy Acuff hosted the TV portion before he was about to leave to do an appearance out of town. He boinged around like a kid in a candy store. They're unstoppable, aren't they? Whisper has said he's trying to take a little more time off to enjoy himself than in the past, but he's certainly earned it.
