Tuesday Night Opry 3/22 & Opry Country Classics 3/24

The Tuesday Night Opry scheduled for tonight has a big hole in the schedule as Rascal Flatts was scheduled for the final segment. However, they have cancelled due to illness. Here is the line-up for tonight as it stands this morning: 

7:00: Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers; Pam Tillis
7:30: Craig Campbell; Darius Rucker
8:15: Del McCoury Band; Charlie Daniels Band
8:45: To Be Announced

A very solid show even without Rascal Flatts. And all but one are Opry members. 

Thursday night also begins the spring run of Opry Country Classic shows, which are held at the Ryman Auditorium. Here is the line-up for the show this week: 

Host: Larry Gatlin
Spotlight Artist: Ray Stevens
Also Appearing: The Gatlin Brothers; Janelle Arthur; Craig Wayne Boyd; Jeannie Seely. 


  1. Ray Stevens !!!! I've got a feeling he'll be in the news next week.

    1. I would have no issue with that at all. Certainly well deserved if it happens.

      As far as tonight, William Michael Morgan has been added.

    2. I hope you're right! Ray Stevens, behind the scenes as a producer/arranger/song publisher/real estate mogul, is one of the people that helped Nashville become a music center and of course on-stage talents speak for themselves (singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/comedian)...and of course one can add music video mogul and variety television show host to that long list of accomplishments.

      I'm tired of the voters shrugging him off as simply a "comedian" and therefore not worthy of enshrinement in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
