Tuesday Night Opry 3/7 & Opry Country Classics 3/9

The Grand Ole Opry has posted the line-up for this week's Tuesday Night Opry:

7:00: Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers; Jackie Lee
7:30: Sunny Sweeney; Exile
8:15: Riders In The Sky; Point Of Grace
8:45: Crystal Gayle; Chris Janson

A pretty nice show. Nice to see the most recent new Opry member Crystal Gayle making another appearance. And yes, another guest appearance for Chris Janson.

The Opry also resumes the Opry Country Classics show for it's Spring run at the Ryman Auditorium. I have heard that this week's show will be a tribute show to Dottie West, and with Larry Gatlin, Jeannie Seely and Steve Wariner scheduled, that would all make sense as each of them were either friends of Dottie or influenced by her.

Host: Larry Gatlin
Spotlight Artist: Steve Wariner
Also Appearing: Jeannie Seely; Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers; Chris Janson; Amber Digby.

As things stand right now, I will be in Nashville this weekend and I should be at the Opry Classic show. More details to come.


  1. Bryon; my Facebook feed daily reminds me of Hall of Fame inductions from the last 7 years. It should be close. I messaged the CMA and got no reply. A later announcement could mean artists are going in with a heavy tourning schedule .

    1. David, from past announcements, I would expect something in the next several weeks. I know that depending on who is elected, they have to coordinate dates with families, tour schedules, Hall of Fame and CMA folks, etc. But it is getting close.
