Historic Week At Grand Ole Opry

Country music legend Conway Twitty referred to the Grand Ole Opry as “The Grandest Lady Of Them All” in his 1970′s hit song.

The Mother Church of Country Music was first heard on WSM radio in Nashville on November 28th, 1925, celebrating it’s 87th radio broadcast birthday this week.

Sit back for a minute and think about the voices that have graced the microphone’s at the Opry and spread out across the country on WSM. Go ahead, name the biggest and most legendary names in the history of country music. They’ve all been on the stage.

From Roy Acuff to Darius Rucker. Little Jimmy Dickens? He still plays the Opry. So many of today’s biggest country stars still dream of singing at the Opry and some are fortunate enough to become members.

Speaking of singing at the Mother Church of Country music, it was 48 years ago this week that Willie Nelson made his Grand Ole Opry debut.

Is the Grand Ole Opry as relevant in today’s country music world as it was back in the days of Webb and Ernest, Hank and Hank, Marty and Lefty and Kitty? The answer is a resounding “Yes!”. Just ask Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts or Kenny Chesney.

A big ol “Happy radio birthday!” to the Grand Ole Opry. 87 years old this week and still sounding as great as ever!
