Hello once more!! I wanted to make a note of this in my blog entry just in case you all happen to be in and around Nashville in the coming week. Ray Stevens is to make an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry this coming Saturday March 21st. This is a week from tonight.
You can read about it HERE.
Don't forget to click the Buy Tickets link if you're in the area and are a fan of Ray's. Given it's on short notice I'd ordinarily not single out just those that live in the area but chances are fans from neighboring states might not have the time to make plans/arrangements for a long distance concert that's just 1 week away.
Even though that's great news here's something even more grand for those that attend the Opry performance...Ray Stevens is to appear in the Opry gift shop immediately following his appearance. He'll be signing copies of his upcoming CD Here We Go Again!. Yes, yes, yes...you read that correctly. If you attend the Opry on March 21st, hold on to your ticket stub, and present it at the gift shop a little after 9pm Central time. Ray will be there to sign copies of the CD.
This means you lucky people that attend the Opry next Saturday are going to get the chance to purchase the CD and have it autographed.
You can read the official statement HERE.
The Franklin, North Carolina appearance is mysteriously missing from the Events page at Ray's site. I don't know if it's been canceled or if it'll be put back up on his site later. The venue's site still has him appearing there this coming June 12th but it's not listed on Ray's site anymore. You can read about it HERE.
If you've been planning on attending that concert I'd call the venue and see if it's still going to take place. Sometimes websites don't update for days or months.
In October Ray's to perform 2 concerts at the Country Tonight Theatre in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The date of those concerts is October 15th, a Thursday. There hasn't been any ticket information posted yet. The venue's site doesn't have him added to their concert series line-up...but that should change at some point.
