Forty Years of the Grand Ole Opry House Country Weekly Staff Favorites

In the April 21, 2014 issue of Country Weekly there is a story about the 40th Anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry House. The Opry has a great YouTube channel and we thought it might be cool for everyone on our team to pick one of the long-running progam’s videos for a “Staff Picks” Opry playlist to celebrate the 40th Anniversary. Be sure to check out the April 21 issue of Country Weekly, on stands now, for more coverage of the anniversary celebration. Enjoy!
