Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree Returns June 6 After Hiatus

Midnite Jamboree June 2015The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree is back from its three-month hiatus due to financial difficulties. It will return to the Texas Troubadour Theater this Saturday, June 6 in celebration of the 68th anniversary of the Jamboree and Ernest Tubb Record Shops. The June 6 show will be hosted by Tubbs’ nephew Glenn Douglas Tubb, who along with wife Dottie has released a new gospel CD.

As reported in MusicRow, earlier this year Glenn Douglas Tubb helped established the Midnite Jamboree Association, a nonprofit organization that is working to help preserve the Jamboree for future generations of fans.

Guests throughout the summer on the show will include Buddy Jewell, Mel Tillis, Connie Smith, Stonewall Jackson, Gail Davies, Justin Trevino and more. As the nation’s second-longest-running radio program, the Jamboree has aired on WSM since it was established in 1947 by legendary country entertainer Ernest Tubb, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
