Tonight! Grand Ole Opry Performers
I don't know if all y'all (all y'all is the plural of y'all) are country music fans, but if you are, we've got a show for you. We have some Nashville/Grand Ole Opry performers coming to Huntsville to perform at the
Coffee Tree Books & Brew - Friday, August 24th - 7:00 to 9:00 PM.
Earl Watts and I (Two Old Men & Some Songs) will be the opening act. We'll probably play for about 20-30 minutes. Earl will probably do his award-winning song, "More Than A Name on the Wall" and his funny parody song, "Whisky River". I will be doing my BIG Hit, "Diarrhea Blues".
****By the way, we plan on doing the WORLD PREMIERE of the just completed Diarrhea Blues Video at the Coffee Tree in about two weeks. Then we will put it on Youtube. This is a G-rated song/video that is suitable for adults and children; it just pokes a little good, clean fun at a problem that affects us all at one time or another.****
Kayton Roberts, who played in Hank Snow's band for 30 years, and is being inducted into the Steel Guitar Players Hall of Fame next month.
Louie Roberts, had a BAD back problem, and may not make the trip, but Kayton says if his medicine works well, he may still make the trip. Louie is a great singer who has played and sung on the Grand Ole Opry, Porter Wagoner Show, Marty Robbins Show, and traveled with Eddy Arnold. We'll just wait and see!
Rob McNurlin, another excellent singer, who had his own TV show in West Virginia, and has been playing with Marty Stewart, will be here to perform.
Roger Carroll, who played bass in Hank Snow's band for 20 years, has been added to the show. With Kayton's steel guitar, and Roger's bass, we will be hearing some real country music, the way they played it on the Grand Ole Opry.
I don't know where else you can get this kind of entertainment with a FREE admission. However, we do hope the attendees will throw some tip money in the bucket.
