Jackson, Paisley play Opry this weekend

Thursday, May 6, 2010 – Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley today were added to the artist line-ups for this weekend's Opry shows. Temporarily displaced from the Grand Ole Opry House because of flooding that impacted Nashville and Middle Tennessee, the Opry will play this weekend at its most famous former home, the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville.

"When we said 'the show must go on' after this week's flooding, Brad, Alan, and the Nashville community obviously agreed wholeheartedly," said Pete Fisher, Grand Ole Opry Vice President and General Manager. "We are excited about keeping the Opry tradition alive with some spectacular upcoming shows. As Opry member Marty Stuart said at our first show since the flooding, 'Our family, our songs and our spirit live on.'"

George Jones added his name to the list of those appearing at the Tuesday Night Opry May 11, also at the Ryman Auditorium.

Among others confirmed for upcoming Opry and Opry Country Classics performances are Eric Church, Charlie Daniels Band, Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Charley Pride, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood and Steve Wariner.

CD review - Angels and Alcohol Alan Jackson, circa 2015, now might be, unfortunately, considered a retro artist. Jackson, thankfully, does not veer from his traditional country beat on his first new studio disc in three years. It's the traditional sound that makes him a throwback today. In an age of rock and rap meshing with country, Jackson will have none of that on this meat-and-potatoes rendering. Jackson's viewpoint has always been about the simple truths of life. He makes that clear in the leadoff track, ...
CD review - The Bluegrass Album Alan Jackson makes his statement crystal clear with the title - "The Bluegrass Album." The traditional country singer has "gone bluegrass," although the idea of a bluegrass disc should not come off as all that far fetched. Yes, there's no pedal steel here, but the sounds, subject and voice are not very different from a typical AJ disc. And this is not the first time that Jackson has veered off the straight and narrow path as his gospel albums indicated. ...
