CHARLES ESTEN SHINES AT GRAND OLE OPRY!


For any fan of Nashville music the Grand Ole Opry is a must. It is definitely a place where music creates a family, and true talent shines through. I always enjoy seeing Charles Esten, and tonight was no exception. He performed two songs, the first being the song played on the latest (wedding) episode of ABC's hit series "Nashville". His second choice was a bit more risque, country rock song that the crowd ate up. You can tell Esten loves performing, he is always ready with a story, a song, and a smile.



Tonight was Steve Moakler's Opry debut, and the crowd loved him. This is the first I had heard of his music, but I highly enjoyed it. Moakler, nervous as anyone about to perform in that great circle, delivered a great performance of his new single "Suitcase" from his brand new album.



A small hometown girl from Kentucky, she played a song she wrote about growing up and all the changes to her town, friends, and family. It was a good ole fashioned country song that drew you into the story.



Michael Ray was another highlight of the evening, as he performed his latest single "Real Men Love Jesus". Ray struck me as a classic country boy, with his traditional style of music.

The night also featured performances from Jeannie Seely, The Whites, T. Graham Brown, Mike Snider, Riders In The Sky, Jesse McReynolds, Opry Square Dancers, Bill Anderson, and The Grascals.

There was something for everyone, as the Opry showcased talent of all ages and all styles of country music from bluegrass, traditional, pop, gospel, and rock. Age 7 or 70, you would find something you liked. I've always heard stories about the Grand Ole Opry being this magical place, that fosters true talent, and a sense of community. Being in the audience and getting to witness first hand, I can feel and see it for myself. The music truly does bring people (and artists) together, unlike any other place.
