      This special program is exactly what it says, a celebration of the Grand Old Opry. Damaged in the flood that devastated Nashville in May 2010, the Opry has been repaired and is back in business. That’s why this Country Comes Home: An Opry Celebration was held, to welcome back the grand lady to the tune of many notable appearances.

      Opry staple Brad Paisley and Little Jimmy Dickens opened the show with a song during which many of the regulars came out onto the stage.

      This was followed up by a rousing Blake Shelton tune. Later on, Keith Urban added his vocals on the stage, as did the marvelous Martina McBride. Martina also sang with Connie Smith, who is another staple of the Opry stage.

      Fortunately, there was more Paisley, too, as well as others like Trace Adkins and Josh Turner. He also did a number with Lorrie Morgan. So many of these singers told little stories about how the flood touched them and how they felt about ...

      • the Opry.

        The event was hosted Nan Kelley who showed viewers various parts of the restored Opry house. One thing that resonated with me was a black decorative line along the wall. It turns out that was the water line from the flood. It’s amazing to see that. From a piece they did on the flood, the waters covered 2 feet in the lobby and 4 feet on the stage.

        Some of the performances were better than others. It’s hard to criticize when

        they are gathered for a special even like this, but while greats Paisley and McBride shined, I can’t say that all of the other numbers were as intriguing. The Turner and Morgan duet, for example, just about put me to sleep.

        There were some rousing numbers towards the end, like Charlie Daniels with Montgomery Gentry. Now you couldn’t fall asleep during that one. There was even a surprise for Blake Shelton, who was invited to join the Opry. That’s a prestigious thing in Nashville.
