The Grand Ole Opry has posted the line-ups for the 2 shows this weekend, 1 on Friday night and 1 on Saturday night. Some interesting artists are appearing this weekend including Pure Prairie League and Old Crow Medicine Show, both of whom will be appearing on both shows. Pure Prairie League has been around for a long, long time with a variety of line-ups. Of course their big hit was "Amie." The group has disbanded over the years and has gotten back together at different times. And at one time, Vince Gill was a member of the group. From what I can tell, Vince is not scheduled for any shows this weekend, so it is possible that he might pop in with the group.
Old Crow Medicine Show is a string band that has been around since the late 1990s, and have been very popular and have a nice sound to them. They have been at the Opry on numerous occasions over the years. Joining these two on Friday night will be Darius Rucker, along with Mandy Barnett, while on Saturday night, they will be joined by Andy Gibson and Billy Dean.
