Opry highlights wide spectrum of acoustic music

opry calendar logoThis Saturday’s Grand Ole Opry broadcast from Nashville will feature performances by a half dozen artists whose music may be of interest to our readers. The mix includes traditional bluegrass (Ricky Skaggs, The Whites), more contemporary grass (Alecia Nugent, Mountain Heart), and jamgrass favorites (John Cowan Band, Old Crow Medicine Show).
