Grand Ole Opry Mid-Week Shows

I know that on days like this it is hard to think about positive thoughts. The entire country is heartbroken today, and will be for the coming days and weeks. So many innocent lives affected; people doing nothing more than enjoying an evening of music and fun. I am sure that there will be sadness at the Grand Ole Opry this week, and probably a number of mentions and remember-isms of the event Sunday night.

As to the Grand Ole Opry, there are three mid-week shows, as in addition to the Tuesday Night Opry and Opry Country Classics, there will also be a Wednesday night show this week:

Tuesday October 3
7:00: Connie Smith; Michael Ray
7:30: Brook Eden; Michael Martin Murphy
8:15: John Jorgenson; Herb Pedersen; Deborah Allen (J2B2)
8:45: Craig Morgan

Wednesday October 4
7:00: Jeannie Seely; Restless Heart
7:30: Charles Esten; Trace Adkins
8:15: Scotty McCreery; Ashley McBryde
8:45: Eric Church

Thursday October 5
Host: Bill Cody
Janie Fricke; The Gatlin Brothers; Maggie Rose; Sylvia; Rhonda Vincent; The Whites

With this coming weekend being the Grand Ole Opry's 92nd birthday bash, I will be in Nashville starting on Wednesday for all the activities over the weekend. That will include attending the Wednesday and Thursday night shows. It should be a great weekend as based on the advanced list of artists scheduled to appear, a pretty decent line-up for the weekend shows.


  1. I'm probably the only person on the planet who needs this explained to me, but here goes.
    I know Deborah Allen, but what's the (J2B2)all about?
    She sounded great to me tonight.....

    1. Never mind.........
      "John Jorgenson’s consummate musicianship, unerring instincts, and flawless technique on a number of different instruments combine to place him among the most accomplished instrumentalists active today. Jorgenson tours regularly in the U.S. and Europe with three distinct ensembles. The John Jorgenson Quintet, J2B2 (the John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band), and the John Jorgenson Electric Band."
