Since the lot of us folks love to reminisce the good ‘ole times of country music, why not watch a three volume- tape packed with talents from the bygone era?
Filmed in Nashville, Tennessee at Ryman’s Auditorium in the historic Grand Ole Opry House, it’s a homecoming of the century!
The show featured various Country pros gathered and seated together while casually sharing songs and stories. You’ll warm up to the relaxed setting of their story telling and it almost felt like they are all still around today. Each one picked a song to perform in between and though they’re fabulous in their own right, you would still be wowed by the harmonious back-up singing. Such professionalism knows how to share a stage with fellow stars. When one is presenting, the rest will join in as voice echoes or back-up instrumentalists.
Be in your nostalgic mode as the following artists render us their classics. They are Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell, Crystal Gale, Bobby Bare, Lorrie Morgan, BJ Thomas, Waylon Jennings, Ricky Van Shelton, Larry Gatlin, Janie Frickle, TJ Sheppard, Lynn Anderson, Gene Watson, Ferlin Husky, Porter Wagoner, T. Graham Brown, Roy Clark, Joe Stampley, Dan Seals, Hank Thompson, and Ronnie McDowell.
Have fun also with the priceless duets of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson in “Mamas, Don’t let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys,” “Vincent” by Chet Atkins and Barbara Fairchild, Geezinslaw Brothers with their “Over the Rainbow,” and “Bad Rock and Roll.” You would not also want to miss Chet Atkins and Roy Clark’s “Alabama Jubilee.” The same goes with Barbara Fairchild and Waylon Jenning singing “Teddy Bear Song” and “Got No Reason Now for Goin’ Home.”
This is a must-see. You’ll surely have a pleasant time enjoying Country music in all its nuances from traditional to Country Pop, then the so-called Nashville Sound/Country-politan to the gutsy Outlaw Country, and of course the classic Urban Cowboy style to the now, Progressive Country.
