Grand Ole Opry 9/12 & 9/13

The Grand Ole Opry is having two mid-week shows this week as the Opry is back to having a Wednesday night show for a few weeks.

Tuesday September 12
8:00: Blake Shelton
8:30: Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers; Jon Pardi
9:15: Margo Price; Henry Cho
9:45: Lukas Nelson; Trace Adkins

Wednesday September 13
7:00: Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers; Clare Bowen
7:30: Riders In The Sky; Charles Esten
8:15: Randy Owen
8:45: Luke Bryan

The Tuesday night segment with Blake Shelton will be part of a nation-wide hurricane relief show that is being nationally televised.

The Wednesday night show will celebrate Country Cares for St. Jude Kids. During this special show, photos and inspirational moments will be shared, and a St. Jude patient will be on stage as a special guest announcer for the night. Those attending the show will be encouraged to support St. Jude.

This is something that the Opry has done in the past and has gotten more involved with recently. When the opportunity comes that those in Nashville and at the Opry can help others, they should always take advantage of it. Our thanks to Ryman Hospitalities and the Grand Ole Opry for stepping forward.


  1. I'm happy to see the Gatlins on the schedule again, they had no Opry show since June 28th....

  2. Haven't seen it mentioned here, but the Opry will be hosting a celebration of life service for Troy Gentry Thursday morning at 11am. Live stream and details available at

  3. Big night at the Opry last night as the Tuesday Night Opry took part of the Hand in Hand 2017 telethon to help those affected by the recent hurricanes. Among those who took part, besides those already listed on the schedule, were Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Usher, CeCe Winans and Demi Lovato. The Opry and Nashville were represented very well.

  4. For some odd reason, WSMonline did NOT broadcast the telethon.
    AM650 did. Very strange.....
    A very interesting development. WSM will soon launch a new online "radio station" called Route 650. It wiill be 24-7 Americana station, featuring a lot of WSM archive stuff.
    I personally think Americana is the only chance traditional country music has left to survive. Today's "country music" stations kicked out anything resembling true country music years ago. Americana isn't afraid of it.
    Route 650 could be very interesting.
    I don't think Route 650 is available just yet, but I can't wait to listen in from time to time when it is.

    1. Nat: I thought Route 650 was on WSM's website now. Am i wrong? Bob

    2. I watched the telethon, but did not catch the rest of the Opry show and was hoping to listen online after. Hopefully they put it up, but I'm not getting my hopes up if it was not broadcasted online live. I am really interested to hear Blake perform his newest single on the Opry (not sure if he did Tuesday). If you have not heard it, it is about the most traditional song he has put out in at least 5 years and I think it would sound awesome live on the Opry.

  5. Bob;
    Route 650 is on the website and working fine.
    I tried it on my cell phone, and for some odd reason, it didn't work that way. Still doesn't.
    But you're right, the website works fine, sounds good.

    1. WSM had technical issues the day they changed there website also. There was no audio from Eddie Stubbs. Just music and commercials. Bob
