Bart Herbison and Doug Share Stories About Elvis
"And I share a my birthday in his death day. August 16th. August 16th, he died on my birthday. And I told the story the other day on one of the podcasts about my next door neighbor Beatty, who, again, lucky you loved Elvis and everything and she came running across all my birthday party. He's dead, he's dead. He's dead. We thought it was. I mean, I thought of her husband and died and it was Betty talking about Elvis and died. And so, you know, the sharing this. So the last part where they actually showed real video of him in those last concerts where he was bloated. He was there. I mean, some of those actually, those are memories are not memories for me. Those are actually, I saw those concerts. That's all. So it was really, really interesting to just see. Well, one last Elvis plug and a story. Peter go around a controversial author. And he was very controversial when he wrote to John Lennon book and the Elvis book too. There's two Elvis books, careless love, and last train of Memphis. There are over a thousand pages, and they're so thorough. It's like he was in the room, so he tells everything good, bad and different. And I particularly love a lot of the stories he told in the famous RCA studio B across the street from my headquarters. And here's one. I got the privilege of knowing Chad Atkins a little bit. One of my mentors, the late Joe Talbot, took me to launch at a place called I forget what it was mauds down on music grow. It's not there anymore. And chat was there. They had a standing launch every Friday they were in town. I couldn't make this up. He sit there playing his guitar at the table quietly. And I looked at Joe and he goes, that's why he's Chad and he plays everywhere. So Chad is the only major artist I've ever heard of that wanted a closing act. Chet went to bed at 8 o'clock if he could. 8 30, he was a country farmer, got up in the wee hours, three or 4 o'clock in the morning. And so Elvis is showing up late or wants to record at ten, 11, 12 may not show up, sits in their place gospel songs all night, and he can't stay awake at 2 o'clock in the morning. So he calls Elvis's team and RCA and goes, look, I like the kid. And at that time, Nashville did not embrace Elvis. They threw him off the grand Ole opry. They didn't know what he was. But Chet liked him and saw that he was about to change music, but he said, I don't care. 11 o'clock tonight, I don't remember if it was four or 5 songs we do them and we're out.

Jason Jones Paid a Powerful Visit to the Grand Ole Opry
"Folks I'm talking to my friend, Jason Jones, who has, among other things, written for the stream, go to stream dot org and you can read his piece, his piece is there, there's a recent piece he wrote on Ukraine. You were just saying that we're both in Nashville right now. And you said yesterday, you went to the grand Ole opry with your kids. Beautiful. And what were you saying? So, you know, I'm there. I got good seats. It was just my son and I, he's been traveling with me and it's been intense week with our work. And so of course, my staff and my team, the suffering and the burden that they're bearing in Ukraine and Afghanistan was on my mind. And I was thinking about this article. I'm going to be writing in response to dugan. He's a heideggerian and thrill of death in war, which is not thrilling a 19 year old boy laying across Constantino wire with his lungs filled with poison gas and a hole in his lungs is not it's not beautiful. What's beautiful is children playing a father cutting the umbilical cord of his newborn child of fathers and son fishing together. And so there we were at the grand Ole opry and I just thought it was such this beautiful experience to be seen as artists, some 90 years old on stage with their children and this is what human life and human flourishing is about. And I look at the rhetoric of our politicians and they have forgotten what their job is and their job is to get between chaos and the citizens. And we need statesmen, we need stateswoman, we need advocates for the vulnerable. And so when we look to Ukraine, we have Jamaican and I have a new article out. You know, it's mordor versus Saddam. The west is sodom and Russia's mordor. And we need Putin and his armies to turn around and leave, but we need to push Soros and Klaus Schwab out of Ukraine. I was going to say, this is what's so horrifying is that when I think of the America of Ronald Reagan, it means to be a shining city on a hill. That cares about people all around the world. When I think of the America of whatever you want to call it, the deep state, the actors at Davos, these are people they don't have the same vision as Reagan did even as Trump did as when I think of the founders. They have a kind of anti American globalist vision

"Love didn't do it yeah she did. You just mentioned Steve dwarf and he was also a guest on our show. He said and I quote if you can't handle rejection, you should go and bake bread for a living. As a songwriter, Bobby, how do you handle rejection? That's why a lot of people don't realize they think, oh, you've had Barbra Streisand record one of your songs. Or you've had a song like one more day. It doesn't get easier. I mean, like, you know, we'll go in the studio and record a brand new song and you're just waiting to hear from my publisher, not just to hear from an artist, but just to get the acceptance from my publisher and for them to say, oh, I don't hear anything in that. After you've put so much hard into it. So that happens. And then Amy Mayo and Chris Lindsay have told us stories about how they write a great song and an artist comes along and says, I love that song. And then they put it on hold. And then they don't record it. Oh, I've had that happen so many times and I'll tell you something else that could if there was such thing as a songwriter therapy class is getting a song recorded and you have to wait a year, two years before knowing it's going to make a project that happened with me on Faith Hill. I had a song that I wrote with rivers Rutherford called I want you for her firefly's record. That's at a time when records were still going double platinum. About 15 years ago. We waited for almost two years. She recorded almost 40 songs for the project and only 12 or 13 was going to make it. So that was a long wait to finally find out if it was going to make it. You flip on the radio and you say to yourself, I wish I wrote that song. What is it? You know, Wichita lineman, that Jimmy. Jimmy Webb. One of my favorite songwriters of all time. I can't imagine how that would feel to say, I wrote Wichita lineman, and the great Paul Williams, you know, that wrote rainy days and Mondays for the carpet. I always get me down. And classic songs. I could name you have a top 40 list of songs I was shot at written. What is it like to be on the stage at the grand Ole opry? I don't know that I can find words for that. I've shared the stage with Larry gatlin with Stephen dwarf Steve's son, Steven, the actor, and but one of the coolest moments on the opry stage was when Sam Williams, Hank Williams, junior's youngest son, who just signed with universal records. I was with him, sharing the stage on the night of his debut performance. And there on that circle of wood were his granddad stood, and there's his dad, Hank Williams, junior, who's been in the business since 8, and that crowd, you know, just not knowing what to expect, but that was pretty awesome. Just being on the stage is one thing, but being on a stage during a moment like that is another. Singing at little Jimmy's memorial on the opry stage. And it was televised, and that was very emotional. You know, since he had been a part of the opera, since the 40s. I know that you have been in films and you've had your music in films. Now, what's that all about? How do you like that? You know what? Great experiences. Every one of them has been great. I've been a part of maybe I guess three films where I was in the acting role, but this one movie Wheeler where Stephen was the star Chris Kristofferson was in the film and I played myself all throughout the movie. That was just a joy. That movie, you know, it's about a dreamer from Texas that comes here to chase his dreams, which is not the most unusual storyline. But this story has a lot of twists and turns that they're not predictable. So if you haven't checked it out, it's on Amazon. It's called Wheeler, and it was a great experience. 5 seasons on the singing bee, do you ever sleep? You have all these different mediums that you're able to do so well in. What was it like to do a TV show? Well, that was just a great experience too because we had such a wonderful cast and crew. And Melissa Peterman, the host who was in the Reba TV show and has been on numerous television shows. She was the host and she was a joy to work with and everyone was just it was like just supporting each other. It was a hard gig. I mean, we had to learn, you know, it's basically a game show where we had a band Steve dwarf was the music leader and had wonderful singers and band members, but we had to know a lot of songs like hundreds of songs. And we would start the song the contestant would finish the song and we couldn't mess up because if we messed up, we could ruin their chance at winning a lot of money. But that was a great experience we filmed in LA. The latest CD is called out of road, which you clearly are not out of, by the way, you've got incredible guest vocalists on this record. So tell us all about it. Well, this is the CDI always wanted to make. Whispering Bill Anderson from the grand Ole opry, he came in and did a part on a song called the grand Ole opry, a song that I wrote. Vince Gill came in, sing harmony, Bobby bear, country music Hall of Fame member. He came in and sang with me on a song called the songwriter. And Linda Davis, I mean, it was just so much fun for me because I wasn't thinking of being commercial. It was totally about heart and songs that I really, really believed in. And it's really been accepted well. And that's the greatest feeling when people really get it and I'm still moving product. And that's so cool. Grammy, CMA, ACM nominations. What are you most proud of in this incredible career of yours? That's an easy question to answer. Friendships. Because awards won't talk to you. Gold platinum records that get dusty. Seriously. That sounds all poetic, I know. But it's not about that. But there's nothing like being able to pick up the phone and call a songwriter or artist friend. There's nothing like calling Bill Anderson like I did last night and talk about a new song that we're excited about. Calling Steve dwarf having lunch with him, sharing our lives problems. That's huge. It doesn't matter what you do. And my whole point of that, people do think this is a world where awards, chart positions where that just makes up for everything, but that's not the case. It's about friendships for me. What's the best piece of advice you've ever gotten, whether it's personal or professional? The one that I was told when I came to town, the one thing that people kept saying to me, and they didn't really have to say it to me, was be a good hang. I'm not going to bring dark energy in the room unless it's just, I'm in the middle of a crisis. Because that's not a good thing. And never be that guy that comes in saying all the way we did it in the 90s, all the way we did it in 2005. Nobody wants to hear that. So I say just be a good hang and be kind to people. Final question, fill in the blank. The key to my success in country music has been what? The love for it. Bart herbison from the Nashville songwriters association told me a couple of years ago, he said, Bobby, you've loved the music so much. It's loved you back. Bobby tomberlin, I want to say thank you so much for being our guest this week on country music success stories. Thank you for telling us your story. Well, it's been an honor. Thank you so much. Hi, I'm Jay-Z Don valaris, your music city mentor. Bobby tomberlin is a class act, and one of the most driven writers in country music. If you're like me, after listening to his fascinating life story, you're probably feeling all filled up with inspiration. And you might even be considering a career in songwriting yourself.

"You're getting this from the viewpoint of a fighting there to say yankee so forgive me From a from a northerner who is not a country person boomer and so people like leon russell and kris kristofferson and bob dylan and grand parsons who are all going to get lots of coverage Abbas said are really aggressively important to him and they are important figures in american music and country music. So i don't have beef with that but this is one gonna have to get the little crucial with him. Because they leave out. Jerry and conway twitty early gets. He has a second or two screen time in the context of novelty songs in a duet with low right. But i thought that was a real missed opportunity to cover these prodigal rockabilly guys. These are the guys the young people who left country music in the fifties to be rockabilly artists. And come and i don't wanna say crawling back. But they kind of craw back because their careers died on the pop charts. Jerry lewis for number of reasons but they come back to new thing.

'cause elvis doesn't comeback special in sixty eight and you get not just country. Artists do in rockabilly songs. But you get the who and blue cheer and it's just all over the place and they also could've tied waylon in with macarthur park which he does in this era another jimmy website. And they're gonna mention glen campbell during wichita lineman again briefly because they're focused on johnny cash in his tv show. They work those things.

I mean they're great songs. Live songs love songs story songs and we've always included those type of songs on our records in the past and we've always done things like the grand opry in other venues But this is the first time we've ever done a whole album of just those type of songs and so it really does have a place in that secular market in the country market and so we were surprised when This weekend we were watching the numbers and the ticked on up to number seven in the country download charts and all i tunes number.

"Performer right yes. She played not in the opera houses. Where the steppingstone is to be invited to play the party plaza outside and she was playing in the sweltering heat and asked for some water. They couldn't get it to her if she could take a break. They wouldn't let her take a break so she took her shirt off in finish the set in her bra and they banned for life. The only person today has been banned for life. 'cause she showed abroa- yeah which is You know. I think. I think she could totally turn this on them now They would probably react pretty quickly to get her back in their. Invite her if she you know if you were like you weren't weren't taking care of woman's health on stage you are performers health on stage By giving them you know letting them hydrate themselves. Then i think they would be like. Oh yeah yeah so so back out here quick. Yeah and she said later in an interview that like this is not a stunt or anything like she was about to have heat stroke and this is how she was coping with it that she wasn't you know trying to be cool or anything or she said she getting kicked out of. The opry wasn't punk rock. It wasn't good or nothing. Good came of it but she did say that. They told her that she'd never play nashville again. And she certainly has played nashville including at the reimann a number of times to which is kind of Good good comeback. Yeah i actually just bought tickets to go see her. In wine country in california in august did a winery. Very chic cannot wait. i can imagine. She's one of my favorites. I've seen her a bunch of times. It'll probably be a nice small show. yeah. It's like you know outdoors at winery sipping wine listening and nico case that's awesome Really can't wait. But she's you know she has a reputation for sort of that outsider. Sorta punk rock attitude. And i think that's why they thought Some people might have thought she was trying to stick it to the grand alarm. And she's now that's not the case so we mentioned the rhyming and obviously the reimann still around But the grand ole opry move from the reimann in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy four right and two This this new venue the Grand ole opry house that it's still in today and it was a big deal when they move because they've been in the reimann for like thirty years. They started to hit like their peak of their popularity. Which has plateaued really high that time And they had their last show in march of nineteen seventy four. And i read this really great article from the new york times of all things From nineteen seventy four by suzanne freeman. It's called opera. Land is a dream to believe in. And it's about you know. The grand ole opry and what it meant to her growing up as a kid in pennsylvania and How she ended up going to this last show and what it was like But as they moved to the opera lane one of the reasons they moved was because of this amusement park it was a radio. Show that started out playing ho downs in the headquarters of an insurance building in nashville. Now had its own disney designed theme park built in nineteen seventy four and this huge forty four hundred person cushioned seat air conditioned venue To to basically celebrate the how far this this thing had come is pretty amazing Doubled almost doubled in size from the reimann And they took a little bit of the tradition with within. They cut out the six foot circle there at center stage with artists. Performs from the raymond's floorboards mood. It over to the grand old opry house Opened it big with richard nixon. On march sixteenth. Seventy four who Performed he actually play the dulcimer and the piano sang. Happy birthday to his wife. sure The reimann very sadly fell on hard times after that and hard to believe that. Kind of like our fabulous fox theatre here in atlanta was actually being talked about being demolished In the seventies and the eighties and there were like the fox. A lot of fundraisers and a lot of people getting involved to save the reimann. And now it's you know one of the oldest and still one of the most premier venues which still host the grand ole opry from november to january every year. They hold it at the reimann. Okay it's pretty cool miscall operate around but it's still the grand old opry Every tuesday friday and saturday february through october. It's sold the grand old opry house and Yeah they don't miss those shows man. There was a flood. Cumberland river flooded in two thousand ten. Yeah and It really damage like they had to do a lot of repairs even had to pull out that center circle and that was really damaged and they restored that got it going again and kept that traditional life so one of the things about the amusement park that i was looking up is that it was closed in nineteen ninety-seven and i was reading an article about it where they're saying like it was just a bad decision that this thing was closed. Elliot's this amusement park was lucrative. Basically from the day it was opened to the day it was closed. It made money. It wasn't it wasn't underwater until that flood But it was replaced in ninety seven by a megamall and even in nineteen ninety-seven people new malls. Were starting to go away so that was a really bad move to begin with. And then i found that the person who ran the The company that owned the amusement park also at the same time decided that it would be best for their company to start. Cornering the market online christian music websites during the height of the dot com bubble just before it burst and This is the same person that decided to to shut down. oprey land usa and replace it with the mall so it's not not one of the great decisions of all time but i thought this was super interesting that it was fine. It just was taken away from everybody. Luckily they're still dollywood so don't panic. Yeah i mean dali partners smart. She started playing the grennell happy when she was ten years old. She saw the writing on the wall with oprey land and Said one and i start my own Amusement country music amusement park. And i don't know if that helped drive opry land out of business or i guess you said they were still doing okay but yeah no. It was good. I saw another. There was another article basically said the Opera land made more money than Dollywood its last month in existence. Wow young bad move How old. I was when i we took that trip. That was us going to oprey. Land the grand opera house doing that stuff. That was a quintessential Bryant family vacation in the nineteen seventies. That's awesome your was to see being with people the whole time hopefully see being with people. We probably camped. Because i know he didn't stay in a hotel because i've literally never stayed in a hotel with my family before. Wow yeah dude. I didn't stay in a hotel till i was except for like church trips till i was out of college. You're like tiny shampoo. It was weird like they give you the stuff. It's funny man. I love the chuck bryant saga. You know it's interesting and not too far from years. I think something about growing up in that time period that's We we have some common. Dna yeah i stayed in hotels though we tell well the industry we can't be campers and we were also Didn't have a ton of money in also cheap. I gotcha i gotcha. All the things combined to enter the camp ground. What else you got anything else on. Grand ole opry. I got nothing else. Just check out my w playlist our july first five. Pm central very nice and hopefully this Fattened up the wfan people that get you that backstage.

"Okay chuck so you. You mentioned how the institutions evolved over the years and you can't really be like the the ongoing voice or foundation or home of genre of music if the genre of music keeps evolving. And you don't write. But there's like kind of this tension for the grand ole opry as well because it is this institution it can't and shouldn't just go chasing. Every trend needs to kind of wait and see see if there. If you know some change that comes along is real change All while protecting like the musical roots of this very proud tradition of country western music. It's not a really enviable position. You know luckily they've had what seems to be a pretty good succession of members and management who've done fairly good job of overseeing that task But the being an institution it's also been kind of Ice burgan in its movements of like change especially when a major change comes along to music like when rock and roll came along. Yeah i mean you start out as folk music in hoedown music and bluegrass stuff and then honky-tonk stuff and eventually the electric guitar is going to make an appearance. And they had a decision to make because Drums and horns and electric guitars were all banned for many years and i think electric guitar even was allowed before drums and horns were allowed in all it takes is kind of one performer to break the mold for people to like it which is key and then for the management to say you know maybe we need to start letting drum sets in ear because it was at that slap bass is kind of what kept that because of time for that kind of music for many years in drums. Were just you know. There's not something. They wanted in their their tool of the devil. Yeah imagine when rock and roll comes in and people like elvis presley jerry lewis come around It's a big deal and they didn't want any part of it. I think elvis was invited to play one. Speedy certainly was never invited. for membership and then jerry lewis He got a little revenge in that he was not treated. He felt like he was sort of shunned by nashville in the country music establishment. Even though he sort of did some country western mostly kind of blazing rock and roll piano tunes and so when he finally played there I think in one thousand nine hundred seventy three they said are you can come and play. We're inviting you but don't play any rock and roll and he said okay. We'll just put me up on that stage. Got up on the stage and said let me tell you something about jerry. Lee lewis ladies and gentlemen. I'm a rock and roll and country and western rhythm-and-blues singing m. f. Yeah mother lover yes and they did not take kindly to that The only reason he wasn't band is because the audience loved it i think. Have you ever read the strange mysterious death of mrs jerry. Lee lewis from rolling stone in nineteen eighty-four. Now you should read it. It's very eye opening in like one of those. I think it was a disgrace. Land episode dead. I'm sure episodes on that. Yeah but it's like kind of jarring how you know if you're super super famous just the different kinds of treatment you get. Even you know in the in a murder investigation. You know yeah. I'm glad that's all changed. Yeah i know the seventies are crazy. But they the fact that they didn't kick jerry lewis out or allowed him to come back and play some more. I don't think he was ever He was never a member right now. He was just somebody to play okay but he was he was invited. Back again was because iraq that place that hard apparently but there have been other people who were kicked out for far less than that for what then what he did So there is kind of this this view from the outside of like. What's the decision making process here. In some of these cases summer just obvious other ones are like. I'm not sure about that one. Yeah there was Well these the birds weren't kicked out. But in the sixties with the hippie counterculture obviously that was going to be an issue with nashville because they had sort of no longhairs rule But they did invite the birds Because they were that kind of new brand of country. Rock in the crowd hated them So i don't think they came back but it wasn't like they were kicked out. They were more or less voted out by you. Know lack of popular demand. That was not a comfortable show. No i'm sure that didn't feel very good. But david crosby had plenty of drugs to save his known so Hank williams was very famously. Kicked out he was a member of the grand old opry News kicked out in nineteen fifty two. Just a few months before he died. he was kicked out because he kept missing. Shows t miss two shows in one weekend because he was off drunk And they were like you. You've just we can't have this any longer. I think we should do a whole episode on him someday. Yeah sure i mean anyone who kind of drinks himself to get to death. Before they're thirty is intriguing at the very least. Yeah very sad story. Yeah green and then johnny cash very he was kicked out of the The opera as well. He met his wife june car cash when they were performing both of them. Separately at the grand ole opry one night and he became a member for years until nineteen sixty five when he Went nuts and destroyed like some lighting equipment. Because as mike wasn't working during a rehearsal Which is a little diva ish. I think you could make the case those fueled and they said Bite your tongue. And they said That he He could not be a member of the opry anymore. And they kept him that way until I think the eighties when he was finally invited back as a member. They said okay. We think you've probably cooled down enough. Well he got sober. And i think saw the era of his ways and made a bunch of big changes for the better in his life. I suspect that it was when he Covered that nine inch nail sawing that the will opera was like this is the bomb. You can come back. It's a great great. He doesn't great covers on those albums. Very sad stuff I think in seventy three There was a woman named skier davis. Who had that really big hit the end of the world. Great song In she got a little political Earlier in the day she was at a shopping mall in saw some cops arresting some There was some church workers sort of witnessing and doing their thing. The shopping mall which i guess you weren't allowed to do so the cops Either arrested them or at least took them out of there and she got on stage that night and said this is something i really should share. didn't ask our manager of. I could say this. But they've arrested fifteen people just for telling people that jesus loves them and that really burden my heart She was a fourteen year member in lost her membership and was banned Reinstated a few years later but Actually was yeah one year later but this was I was like why would they do that. It seems like the grand opera would be way down with that message but the cops were not happy and the police complained and so they had to maintain that dim blue line. You know gotcha did back the blue backlit blue and that's what it is and then check in two thousand one. There was a really I take famous case when nico case was banned a. She wasn't a member of the opry though. I don't believe she was an invited.

"The granola tonight. In that cool i love it and listen to you go in with just the one name. Oh three bo. We're talking about here i watch. Tv show pretty frequently. So i'm on a first name basis with her. I'd never saw it was a good. It actually was good cute. Yeah she was a good good actress for non actor act. Sorry for she was a good actor for a non actor And she really. I think i really came to appreciate reba. I and tremors loved her in that and we can say that because we were bad actors for non actors. Exactly yes we know. We know what we're talking about. Who else these days randy. travis alison. Krauss alan jackson red paisley. I think keith urban darius rucker and blake shelton and most recently the most recent edition is lady a which used to be lady antebellum. That's right until the george floyd murder and ensuing protests. They're like we're gonna drop in a bow antebellum which hats off to them but they went to lady a Which they're probably like this. Coolest sounds good. But then the seattle blue singer lady. A who's been performing for thirty years is like I'm not really okay with this. But i'm not sure that they're changing their name again anytime soon. That's right After you are invited to perform Now that you get your name on the wall. And i think it was blake shelton who actually started the new tradition of hanging his own plaque on the wall because he was so excited apparently he grabbed the plaque and went did it himself during the ceremony. Which is Which is fairly adorable. I think i don't know much about that. Guy but excitable feller. Yeah he's married to Yeah that lady defining they hollow back girl by the way was that a is that one of their songs. Yeah that was one of her songs. Got be a nas something like that. I have rhythm well you sang cepa. That's all i wanted. So should we take another break time. Yeah let's take another break and we'll talk about just how this institution.

"All right. So you're you're throwing these downs in an insurance building. It's going well. People are showing up. Mayors are dropping like flies trying to fight this thing to be big city new york city in tennessee and so they said we gotta move so they said all right. First thing we'll do is we'll move into an actual auditorium space here in the same building that worked for a little while. Then in thirty four they moved to the hillsboro theatre community playhouse now called the belcourt theatre Started telling some ads making a little dough. We think two years later. they outgrew. That moved to the dixie tabernacle which was religious hall Sort of an old timey sort of revival house and they were there for a few years before they said you know what. I don't like this wild audience coming in here on the drink. And acting all crazy dancing in the aisle so get out of the dixie tabernacle and they moved to the war memorial art auditorium which is when they started selling tickets for a quarter apiece. In one thousand nine thirty nine and started i think they even got A spot on nbc. There in a movie thing started happening in a big way. Yeah it was a big deal in thirty nine when nbc started broadcasting them on the radio to a national audience. I mean first of all. It's it's now it's national and certainly legitimizes it but the fact that one of the big broadcasters at the time thought it was important enough show to to pick it up and you know send it out to everybody else. That's a that's a huge and this is you know less than twenty years after it's about fifteen years after the grand ole opry. I went on the air. Yeah that's pretty impressive stuff And then they moved on. I think nineteen forty three to the reimann theater which is one of the places that the grand ole opry is synonymous with right. Yeah and that's i'm dying to go to a show there i'll make it there at some point. Hopefully get that backstage tour from joseph but It was a legendary theater. It was there for thirty years. Twenty three hundred seats. It's the mother church of country music and Think they raise the price to eighty cents there We'll talk a little bit more. About how the reimann still figures in today. but it was That's when things really. I mean if you're an in a twenty three hundred seat you filling it up a few times a week. That's your your big time. At that point. I think they The regular cast would played carnegie hall in the forties went onto tour in europe. And they were starting to birth. Some real sort of superstars like roy aikoff yen minnie. Pearl came along in nineteen forty two. She's just as closely linked to that period of the The grand ole opry is. Roy is for sure I was reading about her. Did you know that whole thing was just a total put on as she was like a college educated woman from well to do family. Yeah it was. It was a character hook line and sinker. She was larry the cable guy. Yes exactly she was. She was larry the cable guy prior to larry the cable guy but i was like i know she was in a commercial that i loved when i was a kid as i think it was speaking span now looked it up and sure enough was it thank you internet. There's one thousand nine hundred eighty two speaking spanish show where she shows up and shows this this lady that she can get her linoleum floors back to looking. New with speaking span was great. Let's funny what hangs in the memory right. It really does that. And then my other association with minnie pearl is That developments on punk rock girl. They'll name their their daughter many pearl. Oh right that's the other the other minnie pearl thing so there's a couple of ways you can get on stage and play the grand ole opry. Most people are invited to play as a guest just on a random individual show and that's a great great honor. Then they have their. I mentioned the cast earlier. They have what's called members there of the cast their these regular Performers who are invited to become a member I think publicly. Once you're invited an existing member will ask you to join them. Live on the air during broadcast. Canada's the the big coming out party i guess And being a member is It's a really big deal like They take a lot of time to add members. They only add maybe a couple of year. There's there's i think sixty five current active members. I'm sorry sixty five total nine of which no longer perform or of officially retired okay. But they're still. They're still considered members of the consider. I think you kind of have to pass away to officially be taken off unless you run a foul which we'll talk about that as well i gotcha So yeah there's the there's the basically i mean to become a member of the grand. Ole opry is an enormous honour. Like it's a really big deal. There are people who Are just huge country superstars that are not members of the grand ole opry. They might be invited to come play a show or something like that. But they're not members of the grand ole opry if you're a member of the grand ole opry. Basically the impression i have is are considered the the The guard of country music is is one way to put it in a really confusing way. Yeah i mean there are a lot of things that go into it and they. I mean it sounds like it's you know they talk about you being successful and you being connected and you being committed. That's a big part of it and we'll get into that in a second but it sounds like there's not just sort of one set of criteria where like hey if you have so many number one hits or so much music sales it's like a bunch of stuff decided by people like subjectively and objectively right. I think also in some cases it's a it's a judgment that's passed on your style of country music like they might not like it at a time. Maybe think too poppy. Back in the day they might have thou- thought it sounded to rock and roll Like there's a there's a definite like like you said subjectivity to it as well as objectivity But if you if you do get that that That invitation You're expected to come play. Twelve shows a year Twelve saturday nights. I should say a year To maintain your Your membership And i think also you have to sell cookies in the in february to help raise funds as a true. I wouldn't surprise me man. it's the girl scouts. No it would not surprise me because they they do expect a lot of participation and not just on show nights. They expect you to go to a lot of shows. Yeah they expect you just kind of be there. a lot. I think in the fifties and sixties They were at. I mean from its inception up into the fifties and sixties. They required twenty six shows a year which is hot man. There's like half your weekend shows. Basic right yeah tour. Yeah if you want to go to. Or that's that's a significant amount of time that you have to dedicate and they've they finally knocked down to twelve which is still pretty significant. Especially if you don't live in nashville but It's much much more manageable than twenty six. You know yeah. They knocked it down to twenty in nineteen sixty four after they balked at twenty six and then nineteen sixty four. It took i think in two thousand they finally knocked it down to twelve. Oh really it took that long Yeah it took a while. Wow so over the years. The the the membership of the grand ole opry has been. You know there's a lot of people that that you would expect Who were members like everybody. From roy cuff as we said earlier and bill monroe the father of bluegrass Pet decline hank williams was for a while johnny cash Barbara mandrell reba. Ribas actually playing. What's the date today. you now. Is it the twenty second. Yes ribas slaying..
