After the Opry on Wednesday night, Josh will be making a road trip as he will be appearing at the Hall of Fame Ribs Burnoff here in Canton at the Stark County Fairgrounds, which I can see from the upstairs of my house. Not sure if I will go down to see him or not, but I will be able to hear the show in my backyard.

On the good news front, Jimmy Dickens is reported to have completed his treatments regarding his throat issues and is doing very well and in good spirits. He hopes to get back to the Opry soon.

And still no news from the Opry regarding the August 10th show, which is Jim Ed Brown and The Browns 50th anniversary since joining the Opry. I know numerous people, including me, have asked and left comments, but to this point no news or no response. We shall see.


  1. Thats great news about Jimmy Dickens. hope he is there for the birthday weekend in October. Hope there will be some names for the birthday weekend soon. ( cmon Carrie Underwood) Robert B, Indianapolis Indiana

  2. Fred, Bismarck:

    Hi, Byron. I hope your comment on the upcoming Ribs Burnoff doesn't mean you wouldn't go across the street to see Josh Turner! (Just kidding.)

    If Jimmy himself looks forward to a return to the Opry, that is surely a vital sign and welcome news. Now that I've gotten used to "watching the radio" on my computer screen, that's one show I wouldn't miss!

  3. It's ok Fred. Now the Oak Ridge Boys are coming to the county fair at the end of August and I will walk across the street to see them!!

    As far as Jimmy, hopefully he will be back soon, at least maybe to do a "walk-on".
