– Charlie Worsham is taking to the airwaves as the host of his own radio show.
"Air Castle Community Hour" is a monthly show on WSM radio, home to the Grand Ole Opry, starting tonight at 7 p.m. eastern. The show will be broadcast every first Tuesday of each month and focus on the diverse musical talent in Nashville.
"For 94 years, WSM has been the literal hub of the country music airwaves, and throughout my 14 years in Nashville, I've been fortunate to come to know so many of the creative spirits that make the music that makes us proud," he said. "It's a thrill and an honor to host a monthly show on WSM that highlights the diversity and charm of Music City's music makers. I want this radio hour to feel like a community happy hour, one complete with laughter and smiles as well as poignant reflection, and, of course, great stories and songs."
Named for the antenna that broadcasts 650 AM, "Air Castle Community Hour" the first episode features songs from Hailey Whitters to The Staples Singers, all interwoven among Worsham's tales from country music history.
"It's always been important to me that the Grand Ole Opry strives to showcase the past, present and future of country music," said Vice President and Executive Producer of the Grand Ole Opry Dan Rogers. "I firmly believe that Charlie Worsham does the same thing. I know many of us in the Opry family look forward to tuning in and hearing from some of the artists we love as well as to having Charlie introduce us to voices that may be new to us."
