RFD-TV is bringing That Nashville Music, a half-hour syndicated series produced by WSM-TV and Opryland U.S.A., back to the airwaves, according to Broadway World. The series was on the air for 15 seasons from 1970-1985 and features rare performances from the Grand Ole Opry archives not seen in decades, from stars like George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Ronnie Milsap, the Statler Brothers, and many more. The series will premiere on RFD-TV on Saturday Nov. 5 during the network’s weekly music and entertainment lineup, “Saturday Night Music Row.”

“For years the number one request from viewers has been to add programming from the Grand Ole Opry stage to RFD-TV. I’m happy to announce that we finally got it done,” stated Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of RFD-TV. “Starting in November, That Nashville Music will feature classic performances from all your favorite country artists from the ’70s and ’80s. Bye-bye repeats. Hello new programming. It’s our way of saying thank you to our fans and viewers who support RFD-TV.”

RFD-TV and the Opry also plan to collaborate on additional programming featuring the Grand Ole Opry stage in the future.
