Can't wait to hear her again and see some dear friends! Hope you can tune in via radio or computer if you are not in Nashville. Of course if you are in the area, come on in...the show is always free and is a nice evening of real country!
*January 19, 1953 - Marty Robbins became a cast member of the Grand Ole Opry. Without a doubt one of the most talented artists to set foot in Music City…but he was certainly set in his ways and rules didn’t get his attention very often. Ernest Tubb told me “I’d like to shoot that son of a (B).” (Grant Turner overheard Ernest say that and he tried his best to settle E.T. down…but it didn’t work.) A few days later Marty was fired from the Opry…but he wasn’t gone for long. He was back the following week…but he didn’t step on E. T.’s boots anymore. When it came time for him to sign off at the Opry and let the Midnight Jamboree start on time Marty complied with his instructions. I lived a short distance from the racetrack in Nashville and I saw Marty race many times and I can tell you… he was fearless.
Ernest Tubb The incomparable Ernest Tubb ("E.T." to all who knew him) became a legend as much for what he was personally as for the half-century career that stretched from his first radio date in 1932 to his death in 1984. Though other singers with better voices and more raw musical talent have come and gone, none has inspired greater love from fans over six decades. Along with such performers as Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, and George Jones, Tubb is country music personified. He was among the first of the honky tonk singers and the first to achieve national recognition. His first recording was "The Passing of Jimmie Rodgers," a tribute to his hero. His long association with Decca began with "Blue Eyed Elaine" in 1940. Three years later his self-penned "Walkin' the Floor Over You," a country classic, was a hit, leading to the Opry, movie roles, and stardom. In 1947 he opened his Nashville record store and began the Midnight Jamboree, which followed the Opry on WSM ...
*October 22, 1965 - Ernest Tubb was inducted into the CMHF. The ceremony was held at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville. Ernest was the 6th person ever inducted into the Hall of Fame. The following is the speech that E.T. gave after he had received the award. “Thank you very much. I don’t think I deserve this, but I’m glad somebody thinks I do.” Ernest, I know 5,000 dedicated Country Music Fans that know for sure that you deserve the Hall of Fame. P.S. Thank you for being my friend…Thank you for inviting me to appear on The Midnight Jamboree, and for all the years that followed… remembering my name. NOTE TO THE 5,000: On the wall on the first floor at Tootsie’s is an 8x10 picture of Ernest Tubb on stage introducing me to the fans at his very popular Midnight Jamboree. That picture has been secured to the wall at the side of the stage, as you enter off Broadway. Fans have removed an untold number of photos from Tootsie’s walls…my daughter made sure they won’t get this one…I hope. ...
*October 2, 1954 - Elvis Presley debuted on the Grand Ole Opry and was not received well by the audience. Jim Denny, the Opry manager told Elvis after the show, that he should go back to Memphis and resume his truck-driving career. Jim Denny was fired from the Opry two years later for “conflict of interest.” Elvis sang his new Sun Records release “Blue Moon of Kentucky.” Bill Monroe told Elvis that he liked Elvis’ version of his song. After the Opry appearance Ernest Tubb invited Elvis to appear on his Midnight Jamboree. Elvis agreed and during the walk from the Ryman to The Ernest Tubb Record Shop, E.T. told Elvis what two songs he wanted Elvis to sing. Elvis complied and the audience was delighted.
Just getting home from a very full Saturday. "Spirit" rehearsal in Adams, stopped by Mom & Dad's in Joelton for some fresh tomatoes, raced home to eat a BLT and head to Shakespeare in the Park (which was amazing!), and then raced home to change and race to Ernest Tubb's Texas Troubadour Theatre where Jeannie Seely celebrated her 45th Grand Ole Opry anniversary on the Midnight Jamboree. Had a lovely reunion with my old media buddy Shannon McCombs, the funny, talented and precious Cindy Smith Moore and her hubby Randy, and Jeannie & Gene. A wonderful day.
At the age of 10, country music artist James Dean Hicks began making the trip from his home on a farm near Bardstown, Kentucky, to the big-city streets of Nashville. There he appeared regularly on the "WSM Midnight Jamboree" with the Grand Ole Opry greats, including Ernest Tubb and Hank Snow. By the...
