Tuesday Night Opry 6/21 & Wednesday Night Opry 6/22

Here are the line-ups for the upcoming mid-week Opry shows: 

Tuesday June 21
7:00: William Michael Morgan; The Whites
7:30: Cassadee Pope; Del McCoury Band
8:15: Bill Anderson; Tracy Lawrence
8:45: Chuck Wicks; Charlie Daniels Band

Half of those appearing are Opry members, which is good to see. 

Wednesday June 22
7:00: John Conlee; Rhonda Vincent
7:30: Craig Wayne Boyd; Diamond Rio
8:15: Jeannie Seely; Mark Chesnutt
8:45: Brandy Clark; Chris Janson

Another appearance by Chris Janson who I think is still awaiting Opry membership. Brandy Clark is appearing in support of a new CD, as is Mark Chesnutt. This will be Mark's first new CD in a number of years. 

Two pretty nice shows scheduled!!


  1. Chris Janson, as usual, is stealing the show.
    This is his 141st appearance on the 'Opry.
    The Grand Old 'Opry should be ASHAMED and EMBARRASSED that they have not asked Chris to be a member.

  2. Its times like this when I wonder if the Opry has done the mistake they did with jan howard and chet atkins, and forgot that chris isnt an opry member.

    the only other thing i can think of for why chris isnt a member yet is because theyre waiting for him to have another big hit song, which, according to vince gill, isnt far from now.

  3. Some sad news about performer Margo Smith - Country hitmaker Margo Smith is in a Florida hospital’s intensive care unit battling pneumonia and “some other issues.” Friends and family members of the “Don’t Break the Heart That Loves You” singer are asking for prayers.
    Smith is currently in the Ocala, Fla. Regional Medical Center, according to the Village-News. Smith’s husband Richard shared her diagnosis with the news site, adding that doctors are hopeful. “Margo is a real fighter,” he says. “Right now we’re asking for [fan] prayers.”
    “The Happiest Girl In the Whole USA” singer Donna Fargo was one of Smith’s contemporaries and friends to spread the prayer request. Fargo made a call for prayer partners on Facebook, saying that Smith was also on life support.
    In addition to notching several Top 10 hits in the mid-to-late 1970s, Smith is known for her gospel music and her yodeling. In fact, her nickname is the Tennessee Yodeler, with fans referring to her as the best yodeler ever as recently as 2015, when she returned to the stage following a near-fatal car accident. “It Only Hurts for a Little While” and “Little Things Mean a Lot” are two of her other hit songs. She also found success for “Cup of Tea,” a duet with Rex Allen Jr. in 1981.
    Smith has continued to perform and record since her commercial success faded. She’s recorded several songs and albums with daughter Holly. There are no pending tour dates at her website. Please keep Margo and her family in your prayers. Frank

    1. Sorry to hear about Margo.
      One of the best albums I've ever heard, and one I love to hear on my stereo system, is Margo's.
      Without question, Margo is the best yodeler I've ever heard , and a true star.
