Tuesday Night Opry/Start of CMA Music Fest

Traditionally one of the events that takes place toward the start of the annual CMA Music Fest in Nashville is the Tuesday Night Opry. The line-up for the two shows is generally pretty good and this year the highlight is the return to the Opry of Carrie Underwood. Carrie, who usually is pretty good at making her Opry appearances, has not been performing since the birth of her child.

While not up to the quality of past shows during CMA week, here is the line-up for this week's Tuesday Night Opry:

1st show
7:00: Scotty McCreery; Mickey Guyton
7:30: Bill Anderson; Mo Pitney
8:00: Billy Currington; Del McCoury Band
8:30: Easton Corbin; Carrie Underwood

2nd show
9:30: Scotty McCreery; Mickey Guyton
10:00: Bill Anderson; Carrie Underwood
10:30: Billy Currington; Mo Pitney
11:00: Del McCoury Band; Easton Corbin


  1. Carrie Underwood continues to impress me with her dedication to the 'Opry.
    She doesn't need the 'Opry, she obviously appears regularly because she loves it.
    Thanks Carrie!

    3. What did Carrie Underwood sing

  2. I think this is a decent line-up - very happy to have Mo Pitney on again - what a great voice & he sings country music folks. And Del McCoury Band, Bill Anderson, Billy Currington & Easton Corbin. Not a huge fan of Carrie Underwood but her dedication to the Opry is there, unlike so many other members. I like Scotty McCreery & watched as he was crowned the American Idol a few years back.

    I don't know who Mickey Guyton is, but along with everyone else, I'm about to find out.

    Did I hear right? Not sure that I did ... someone correct me if I heard incorrectly, that Mickey Gilley will appear on the Opry soon .... oh boy, I'm listening in for sure, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his voice & music.


  3. Jeanene, you are right. Mickey Gilley is scheduled for the Opry this weekend, I believe on Friday night. And if everyone shows up as advertised, it is going to be one of the best shows of the year.

    1. I just looked at the Opry line-up for this weekend running through Wednesday's show & ALL I can say is HOLY SMOKES!!! Star power for sure. Thanks Byron, Mickey Gilley will be on Friday night after Mel Tillis. And you are right, if everyone shows up, it will be one stellar night at the Opry.

      The Sunday morning show sounds absolutely wonderful too.

      Wow! Impressive - Pete Fisher & all the artists have outdone themselves! Sure wish I was able to hop that one hour flight from Chicago to Nashville to sit in the Opry House & listen to it all. I'd go broke buying a ticket to every Opry show for Pete-sakes ... but it would be so worth being broke with the line-up I'm looking at. ha! (just kidding of course) - :-)

      Sure hope computers and/or technology do not fail us on any night in the next week.

      Enjoy all the Opry shows through Wednesday everyone, they are each going to be outstanding. Again, all I can say is holy smokes!! - :-)


    2. With Mickey leaving Branson this year, we may see more of him at the Opry

  4. Any updates on Jim Ed Brown? All I've seen is that his cancer returned (unspecified location) and that prayers were requested. I hope for the best but personal experience is that if cancer returns this quick it is not a good sign at all. There was a facebook post on his page saying he'd also contracted pneumonia. Still, only God knows what his plan for Jim Ed is and we can pray that His will be followed.

  5. A few months ago, Jean Shepard announced she would do a show in Minnesota in June. Unfortunately, she cancelled due to health concerns, and her son will take over for the June 28 show at Midwest country.

    It's been really sad to see both Jim Ed & Jean off the Opry so much this year. I hope both of them are able to recover from their illnesses like they have before.
