Tuesday Night Opry 9/13

Before taking a few days off to spend some vacation time in Gatlinburg, I thought I would post the Tuesday Night Opry line-up for September 13: 

7:00: John Conlee; Clare Dunn
7:30: Wade Hayes, Old Dominion
8:15: Randy Owen; Ricky Skaggs
8:45: Drake White; Montgomery Gentry

Meanwhile, the only new item regarding the Opry's birthday bash, just one month away, is that the Saturday show now includes The Secret Sisters in addition to Mo Pitney. Nothing against either act, and they are both actually pretty good, but so far no Opry members or what I would call "star" attractions. Maybe an announcement this week. With 2 shows on Saturday night, they will have to come up with something a little better than this. 

Meanwhile the Opry Country Classics show for that Thursday night includes Connie Smith, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Rhonda Vincent, Gene Watson and William Michael Morgan. Not a bad group of names at all. 


  1. Fred, Bismarck:

    All pretty thin soup. If you'd like a shot of real old-style country, instead of warmed-over radio acts, Google the SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS. They've got 4 CDs in print, I've got all of them, and they're stand-up-and-holler good -- the Carter Family with a little musicianship.

    As I've made myself tiresome saying ... the real stuff is out there, if that's what you really want. The Opry ain't even trying.

  2. Byron, have a wonderful vacation with your bride.

  3. Eddie Stubbs reported last night that Jean Shepard is home as of last Friday after two weeks in the hospital. He said you can still send her cards through the Grand Ole Opry address.
