MCR is broadcast to a global audience, not just as the keeper of the traditional flame, but as a trusted tastemaker that looks to the future of music in all its forms and sub-genres: bluegrass, folk, alternative, western, rockabilly and crossovers into rock, jazz and world music.

Each broadcast features four artists in 25 minute segments and short interviews, plus a show-closing Nashville Jam where all musical guests embrace the spirit of Music City as the collaborative epicenter of tradition and innovation. Nashville’s legendary Keith Bilbrey is the announcer; Jim Lauderdale and other leaders of the music community host the festivities.
Born and raised in Bolt, Raleigh County, “Little” Jimmy Dickens was 4 foot 11 inches tall and a permanent member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1949.
In 1964, Dickens became the first country music star to circle the world during a tour. Dickens charted hits in every decade from the 1940s to the 1970s.
Dickens was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1983 and was in the first class of inductees into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
Dickens’ last Opry performance was December 20, 2014, four days after his 94th birthday. He passed away just two weeks later on January 2, 2015.
