Opry Country Classics Series Returns March 9

The popular Opry Country Classics series is back for the Spring and will run Thursdays from March 9 – June 1, beginning each evening at 7 p.m. Larry Gatlin returns as host for 10 of the weeks, with Opry announcer Bill Cody stepping in for Gatlin for two shows.

The March 9 kickoff show is set to feature some songs from the catalog of late Opry great Dottie West. Among those set to honor West are three artists she shepherded through their early years in Nashville: Jeannie Seely, show host Gatlin, and the evening’s Spotlight Artist Steve Wariner.

Additional spotlight artists already scheduled for the spring lineup include Pam Tillis (March 16), Lorrie Morgan (March 23), Crystal Gayle (April 13), Tanya Tucker (April 20), Oak Ridge Boys (April 27), Charlie Daniels Band (May 4), Brenda Lee (May 11), and Dailey & Vincent (May 25.)

A special Saturday afternoon edition of Opry Country Classics is scheduled for CMA Music Fest Week on June 10. Opry Country Classics tickets as well as money-saving ticket combos including admission to both Thursday night Opry Country Classics shows and Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday shows are available by visiting opry.com or by calling 615-871-OPRY.
