Starling, Emmy Lou on The Opry

More great bluegrass radio news for the upcoming football weekend.

The Saturday Grand Ole Opry radio broadcast on WSM will include performances from John Starling & Carolina Star, along with Bobby Osborne, Mike Snider, and Del McCoury. The Whites, Emmy Lou Harris and Vince Gill are also scheduled on Saturday night, so the possibilities are better than average that some interesting combinations will appear on stage.

It seems especially likely that Starling and Harris will sing their duet on In My Hour Of Darkness, which is featured on the upcoming CD from John Starling & Carolina Star, Slidin’ Home, as they are scheduled in the same segments (8:30-9:00, 11:00-11:30) in both the early and late Opry broadcasts.

You can hear the song, one that Emmy Lou co-wrote with Gram Parsons, on the band’s MySpace page, .

For those who can tune in to WSM over the air in the south/central US, you’ll find them at 650 AM, broadcasting from Nashville. If not, you can catch the live WSM audio stream online to hear the program, which runs from 7:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 3 (EST).

Emmy Lou, Starling and Del will also appear on tonight’s Friday Opry show (2/2), which is not broadcast. Selections from both the Friday and Saturday shows will be posted in the WSM audio archives page by early next week.
