    One of the things I enjoy about this board is the way it draws together people with such different musical tastes and backgrounds.

    To me, Del McCoury certainly qualifies as a "big name" - he's won more than 30 awards at the IBMA - including 9 "Entertainer of the Year"s.

    Now in his late 70s, it's a mark of his longevity that, the first time he appeared at the Opry, he was playing in Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys! It would be a mistake to see him only as a traditionalist though - he's always been willing to enlarge his repertoire and influences, and he's appeared with progressive artists from the Alternative wing, such as Donna the Buffalo and Steve Earle - and he won awards for his cover of the modern English folk song and influential Outlaw biker anthem, "1952 Vincent Black Lightning".



    I have feeling that Del might well see Carrie as an artist he could admire, as also interested in a flow of tradition, open to stylistic advance and a mix of influences.

    * The name he changed to Knoxville in his version, by the way, was originally Box Hill, on the North Downs in Surrey, now a heritage park

    Well the Opry site still says more to be added. Another person I would love to see is Lauren Alaina... her voice is just amazing and her new album is fantastic.

    I don't know much about Margo, but yay for a full half hour for Carrie. Does she always get a full half hour? How many songs will she sing in that time? I know she typically does 3 songs per show, but is that with only a 15 minute slot.

    Are you going to both shows? I'm just going to the 7:00. If you are in the balcony can you still do the photo line?

    Seems like they are missing some big stars for this year's CMA Fest Opry week. Usually there are several other big stars in the lineup---- not just Carrie-- because it's CMA week.

    Yes, I'm going to both shows.
    They've changed the Opry stage/seating a couple years ago so people can no longer go down and sit in front of the stage like they use to.You can go down and take a picture or two then they usually chase you off.

    Donna usually records, but she will be at the shows, so not sure if anyone else usually does that or not.

    Margo tweeted that her grandmother is driving 500 miles to see her stand in the circle.

    For fans who follow the broad span of contemporary Country Music, it represents a chance to see the two female artists in one visit, who are most in the spotlight on their respective wings of the current stylistic spectrum.
