Nashville Opry set for January 26 at Ag Center
Elvis has returned and on January 26, he will make his debut in Nashville with a performance at the 30th annual Elsie Clark Memorial Nashville Opry.

Elvis is just one of many performers expected to grace the stage at the Saturday event. Others include Ronnie Ezzell, Joe Tripp, Fire Station, Linda Ripke, Russ Varnell, the Smith Brothers and the Bunn Boys.

The Opry is hosted by Nashville’s Business and Professional Women organization. The annual event, once called the Nashville Opry, was the idea of former BPW member Elsie Clark. Clark passed away in January 2006 and the event was not held. But in 2007, the show went on and the Opry was renamed the Elsie Clark Memorial Nashville Opry.

“The Nashville Business and Professional Women are pleased to be hosting the 2008 Nashville Opry,” BPW President Barbara Tyre said. “We look forward to the community support that we have had for the past 31 years.”

Special events chair Mary Alice Wells said the event promises to be a good time for the entire family.

“We’ve got good talent and we’re really looking forward to it,” Wells said. “It’s clean, entertaining fun for the family.”

This year’s event will begin at 5 p.m. and will last until 11 p.m. Each performance will last around 45 minutes each.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under. Food and drinks will be available at the event.

“We hope that the community will come out for an enjoyable evening of some fine talent,” Tyre said. “We have something for everyone at this family event. There will be gospel, country, and popular (music).”

“We will have hotdogs and drinks (and) the Nash County 4-H Exchange Club will be selling some delicious sweets to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth,” Tyre added.

All money made at the event will support the BPW’s annual scholarship fund.

“It’s the best deal in town,” Wells said. “It’s for a good cause.”

Booths can be rented for $35. The deadline to reserve a booth is January 25. For more information on booth rentals, call Shirley House at 459-8811.
