A couple of days ago I came across an upcoming appearance at the Opry by Ray Stevens. The Opry calendar has Ray Stevens appearing on June 24th, a little more than a month from today. Also appearing that particular evening are Montgomery-Gentry, Charlie Daniels, and Terri Clark in addition to the Opry regulars.
June 24th is on a Tuesday.
For those not familiar, the Opry puts on various presentations and it's not confined to just a Friday and Saturday night anymore. Throughout much of the year a Tuesday Night Opry presentation is broadcast (March to December) as is a Wednesday night presentation (during summer months) in addition to all of the other activities surrounding the Opry House area.
The Tuesday night version of the Opry begins at 7pm Central time, 8pm Eastern. There's no information posted as to when Ray's part of the program is scheduled to start but you can see the promo HERE. Typically, a detailed list of the Opry's segment by segment contents is supplied a couple of days prior to the show. As usual, appearances are subject to cancellation without notice and I originally had the idea to make mention of this appearance the closer we get to June 24th...but I decided to make mention of this upcoming appearance sooner rather than later just in case the venue is sold-out by mid June.
Ray, according to the Opry's calendar, is also going to be appearing at the Opry gift shop around 9:15pm Central time on June 24th. The reason? Click HERE to find out. As it states on the webpage...make sure you keep your Opry ticket stub on hand as you visit the gift shop. The event isn't open to the general public...it's exclusive to those that bought tickets to that night's Opry show.
