The Kentucky Opry Welcomes The Bellamy Brothers!


MARCH 29, 2019
The Bellamy Brothers at the Kentucky Opry!
Draffenville, KY
Howard and David now celebrating 40 years of success!
The trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself-music that is. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ’70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ’80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn.
The Bellamy Brothers latest project is their new album titled ’40 Years’ is an ambitious project that celebrates their career with 20 of their biggest hits and then adds 20 brand new songs in this 2 cd anniversary collection. Showtime 7:30pm.

Well first off you can buy tickets for this event right HERE. Now, trust me The Kentucky Opry has a plethora of other shows coming to it’s great halls, like the upcoming Joe Diffie show. Also they are promoting the upcoming Charley Pride show coming to the Carson Center in Paducah.

True, these two have gathered much of their success during the 70s in the pop country area, before switching over to more traditional country in the 80s I consider them one the most overlooked duos in Country Music PERIOD.

They have a new book out on the market and many new songs to play for the public here on stage. I vividly remember them playing on Hee Haw and many other shows as I was younger, when they were on the pinnacle of their youth.

Mr. Charley Pride Comes To Paducah’s Carson Center In 2019.

The Carson Center in Paducah Kentucky has lined up a GREAT 2019 with the likes of Country Music Legend Charley Pride. You know, Charley Pride was the first Legend that I collected all of his vinyls before anybody else.

One interesting thing about the subject of “African American Performers” in Country Music is nobody ever mentions that along the same time as Charley Pride’s zenith, Capitol Records was promoting another black Country artist named Stoney Edwards. Perhaps sometime in the future I’ll write more about that subject…

Kentucky Opry Presents:

A trailblazing singer who became the first black Country Music Superstar, Charley Pride has had an amazing career. From his humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son on a cotton farm in Sledge, Mississippi, he caught fire with 1967’s ‘Just Between You and Me’, breaking into the Top-10 Country chart and garnering his first Grammy nomination.

Between 1967 and 1987, he amassed 52 Top-10 Country hits and sold tens of millions of records worldwide. In 1971, his #1 crossover hit ‘Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’ sold over a million copies and helped him to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year award and the ‘Top Male Vocalist’ awards of 1971 and 1972. It also brought him a ‘Best Male Country Vocal Performance’ Grammy Award in 1972.

A string of unforgettable hits spanning three decades, songs like ‘Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone,’ ‘Mississippi Cotton Pickin’ Delta Town,’
‘Burgers And Fries,’ ‘Roll On Mississippi’ and ‘Mountain Of Love’, have made Charley Pride a living legend.

His legacy in Country Music history was firmly established in 1993, when he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, 26 years after he had first played there as a guest.

Mr. Joe Diffie To play The Kentucky Opry In 2019.

JAN 18 
Joe Diffie returning to Kentucky Opry. Tickets on Sale NOW!
Draffenville, KY

The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ’90’s may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album “Homecoming,” and his recent “Roots And Boots” acoustic tour and collaborative CD “All In The Same Boat,” with fellow hit makers Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin.

The folks over in Draffenville Ky at the Kentucky Opry have scheduled a true 80’s and 90’s Legend of the last time I remember REAL Country being played on the radio waves. I mean, how many of you miss that 80s twang like Sammy Kershaw and Travis Tritt?  See, those people ARE STILL active and making music, but the mainstream media wants you to forget them and is even downright ashamed of having any previous affiliation with these acts.

After 1990 he released seven studio albums on the Epic label and gathered thirty five singles on the billboard charts, five of which peaked on number one. I mean, WHO DOESN’T remember “If The Devil Danced In Empty Pockets”? He has achieved twelve other singles on the top 40 charts in his tenure.

Even though we haven’t heard any new music from him since 2010’s Homecoming: The Bluegrass Album, he has maintained a strong road presence and plays many road shows. He has a great stage presence and puts on a good show! Please join me as I go cover this man’s show in the beautiful Land Between The Lakes area.
