We'll, that didn't take long. Already changes in the Friday night line up. Larry Gatlin and his brothers are off the schedule and they have moved a few folks around. Not sure the reason for Larry not being there as he is still scheduled for a concert on Saturday night. Anyways, at this point, no replacement for Larry.
The Grand Ole Opry has posted the line up for the 2 shows this weekend. As usual during the winter, there is 1 show on Friday night and 1 show on Saturday night, both at the Grand Ole Opry House.
I will be in Nashville this weekend attending the shows this weekend, and as always, when I get back on Monday, I will report on anything that I have heard or seen. But as the Opry goes through the winter, things remain pretty quiet.
The Friday Night Opry will feature Opry members Montgomery Gentry, Josh Turner and Larry Gatlin, along with newcomers The Farm. Saturday's Grand Ole Opry will feature Opry member Craig Morgan, along with frequent Opry guests James Wesley and Sunny Sweeney. As with last weekend, Jimmy Dickens is not scheduled.
Friday February 10:
7:00: Mike Snider (host); Connie Smith; The Farm
7:30: Jim Ed Brown (host); Jesse McReynolds; Diamond Rio
8:15: Bill Anderson (host); Jean Shepard; Montgomery Gentry
8:45: Jeannie Seely (host); Josh Turner
Saturday February 11:
7:00: Mike Snider (host); Jimmy C Newman; James Wesley
7:30: Jeannie Seely (host); The Whites; Diamond Rio
8:15: Jim Ed Brown (host); Jan Howard; Sunny Sweeney; Opry Square Dancers
8:45: John Conlee (host); Bobby Osborne & The Rocky Top X-Press; Craig Morgan
Friday definitely looks like the better night this week. Each show has 12 artists scheduled, with 11 Opry members on Friday night and 10 on Saturday night.
After a live show last weekend, this week the Midnight Jamboree goes back to having a taped show, this one featuring Jett Williams.
That should do it and if anything develops in Nashville this weekend at the Opry, I will let everyone know.
