Road Crew Redo

It was just about a year ago that I set out for what was supposed to be a Nashville musical triple play. After a night in Louisville, I would head to “Music City” for a night at the Bluebird Cafe, a night at the Grand Ole Opry, and a night listening to road fan favorites The Road Crew. Major snowfall kept me from the Opry and totally wiped out the Road Crew performance. I did catch three talented musicians at the Bluebird. The story of that trip is here.

I’m trying again. When snow kept me from the Opry I was told I could apply the price of the ticket to another anytime during the next year. When I learned that the Crew would be performing this Saturday, I called the Opry and managed to beat the one year expiration date by a day. Not surprisingly, prices have gone up so that I had to cough up an additional six bucks but I’m set for the Opry on Friday and the Road Crew on Saturday. Two Thursday night shows at the Bluebird were sold out.

The journal for the trip is here. This entry is to let blog subscribers know of the trip and to provide a place for comments.

  1. Denny, thanks for the info on Wig Wam Village in Cave City, KY. I’m making reservations for Diane and I for April 12 (and possibly the 13th) for our trip to Memphis – I’m putting together another reunion for our 42d MP Group (Customs) reunion there!

    • I’m guessing this will be a stop on the way and not something for the whole group. I know you and Diane will have no issues with it but not everyone enjoys the history of (or is even willing to deal with the quirks of) an eighty year old motel. I enjoy staying there but know from experience that the tepees can be rather chilly in the winter. April should be good.
