Candles For Opry

Grand_ole_opry_logo_2005Happy birthday to the Grand Ole Opry, which turns 82 years old today. Probably the best lookin’ 82-year-old we know, outside of Joan Rivers.

Seriously though, folks, the Opry is still a relevant and unique place. On any given Friday or Saturday night (and Tuesdays in the fall and winter), you can see a new act like the totally fab Lady Antebellum play right before someone like the late, great Porter Wagoner. One of our favorites, roots country artist Elizabeth Cook, is a regular on the Opry and we love watching her do her thing... mainly 'cuz she's so durn unpredictable. You might get a tender ballad or an uptempo scorcher that ends with an impromptu clogging demonstration by Miz Cook. Where else does that happen? Nowhere. Night in and night out it's a great place to experience music.
And if you can’t catch it live, it's also on GAC on Saturday nights and on WSM-AM all across the East Coast. Heck, you can even listen on your new-fangled XM satellite radio. We should look so good at 82.
