The Grand Ole Opry show we went to is called Opry Country Classics. They have it every Thursday. It's broadcast live on the WSM radio station.
There are breaks during which the announcer reads commercials, sort of like the fake commercials on Prairie Home Companion, except that these aren't fake.
A Minnie Pearl look-alike greeted us and explained the proceedings.
We got to see Jim Lauderdale,
Riders in the Sky (Chantal's favorite),
Jimmy Fortune (formerly of the Statler Brothers),
Lynn Anderson ("I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden"),
and Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives.
Many of the audience members were dressed for the occasion.
