Tuesday Night Opry 3/21 & Opry Country Classics 3/23

Here is the line-up for the Tuesday Night Opry, March 21:

7:00: Connie Smith; Luke Combs
7:30: Kristian Bush; Smithfield
8:15: Chris Janson; Ricky Skaggs
8:45: Trace Adkins

Nice to see Trace on the Opry schedule and being given the entire last segment. On the Tuesday night shows, I don't have an issue with one artist getting an entire segment. Also, another guest appearance by Chris Janson. We shall see if Sally Williams has a different opinion on Chris being an Opry member at some point than Pete Fisher did.

And here is the line-up for Opry Country Classics, Thursday March 23:

Host: Larry Gatlin
Spotlight Artist: Lorrie Morgan
Also Appearing: The Gatlin Brothers; The Whites; Waylon Payne; Jesse Keith Whitley

A nice line-up.


  1. The 2017 Country Music Hall of Fame inductees will be announced on April 5

  2. For those interested, among the leading candidates to get elected, Ricky Skaggs has a show that night at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville; Alan Jackson, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr., Crystal Gayle; Ray Stevens; and Brooks and Dunn have no events scheduled. I am sure there are others who will research more of the contenders.

  3. Vince Gill will be hosting the Hall of Fame announcement on April 5

  4. Marty Stuart is free that day too. Marty was President of the Country Music Foundation before Vince was.


  5. Out of the following acts that I`m gonna mention for The Hall of Fame from the Modern and Veterans Categories
    (Ricky Skaggs Alan Jackson The Judds Brooks & Dunn Tanya Tucker Crystal Gayle Ray Stevens and Hank Williams Jr.)Who do you guys see getting into the Hall of Fame this year from the Modern and Veterans Categories?
