At noon, Dixie Bee-Liners will perform on Blue Plate Special, airing on WDVX from Knoxville. This is live radio, like the old days… no frills, just pickers picking and singers singing. You can catch the show over the air in Knoxville at 102.9 FM, or via online streaming.
Then this evening, The Grand Ole Opry offers a number of bluegrass acts, highlighting some of the early pioneers and the brightest new stars on this same show. Ralph Stanley will be featured in the 8:00-8:30 p.m. slot (EDT), and Bobby Osborne between 9:15-9:45. Dailey & Vincent are scheduled to close things out during the final 9:45-10:15 segment. D&V will surely perform material from their newest CD, Dailey & Vincent Sing The Statler Brothers, a Cracker Barrel exclusive which has just reclaimed the #1 spot on the Billboard bluegrass chart.
Jamie and Darrin will return to the Opry stage on Saturday night (4/17) as will Dr. Ralph, joined by Ricky Skaggs and the Whites.
The Grand Ole Opry can be heard on broadcast radio throughout much of the central US on WSM 650 AM, and is also streamed live at wsmonline.com and on Sirius 62 and XM 10.
