The Grand Ole Opry: Everything You Need to Know
For nearly 94 years, since it began as the Wsm Barn Dance in the fall of 1925, the Grand Ole Opry has been a country-music institution. But few fans really know what the Opry is, how an artist is inducted, and what comes along with membership.

Flashback: Grateful Dead and Friends Draw 600,000 to Watkins Glen Summer Jam

It’s a safe bet that when Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang approached Watkins Glen International to host the still-up-in-the-air Woodstock 50 festival this summer, he had visions of Summer Jam in his head. On July 28th, 1973, a mere four years after Woodstock, a concert at the same upstate New York racetrack featuring only the Allman Brothers, the Band, and the Grateful Dead drew an estimated 600,000 people — enough to earn it the Guinness World Record for the most attendees at a pop music festival. By comparison, Woodstock attracted a minuscule 250,000 people, according

Happy 89th Birthday Clint Eastwood! Here Are His Ten Best Films

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

Happy Birthday to one of We Are Movie Geeks favorite stars. Clint Eastwood was born on this day in 1930, making him 89 years old today. The actor and two-time Oscar winning director hasn’t let his age slow him down a bit.

We posted a list in 2011 of his ten best directorial efforts Here

Clint Eastwood has appeared in 68 films in his six (!) decades as an actor, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Honorable Mention: Honkytonk Man

By the 1980s, Clint Eastwood was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. With his own production company, directorial skills, and economic clout, Eastwood was able to make smaller, more personal films. A perfect example is the underrated Honkytonk Man, which also happens to be one of Eastwood’s finest performances.

Drawing upon Eastwood’s love of both music and period history,

Flashback: Johnny Cash Sings ‘The Unclouded Day’ With His Mother

Flashback: Johnny Cash Sings ‘The Unclouded Day’ With His Mother
In 1944, one week after the accidental death of his older brother Jack, 12-year-old J.R. Cash answered the altar call and accepted Jesus Christ as his savior at the First Baptist Church, the tiny house of worship his family attended three days a week in Dyess, Arkansas. It was at that same church that J.R. would make his public singing debut, accompanied on piano by his mother, Carrie Cash. The song he sang was a late-19th-century hymn, “The Unclouded Day.”

By 1970, J.R. was known simply as Johnny Cash,

Gordon Lightfoot at 80: Inside Canadian Legend’s Long Country Music History

Gordon Lightfoot at 80: Inside Canadian Legend’s Long Country Music History
With a warm, distinctly weathered voice and enormous pop-country crossover appeal, Canadian-born Gordon Lightfoot became one of the most successful of the deeply introspective, primarily folk-influenced singer-songwriters of the 1970s. A national treasure in his home country, the Orillia, Ontario, native, who turned 80 last November, resumes his latest tour — the aptly titled 80 Years Strong — on April 3rd, with dates expected to stretch throughout the year. Lightfoot also recently announced that he’s been working on his 21st studio LP, which will represent his first new album in 15 years.

Texas Truck Driver-Songwriter Will Beeley Resurfaces With ‘U.S. 85’

Texas Truck Driver-Songwriter Will Beeley Resurfaces With ‘U.S. 85’
Will Beeley comes to the end of the line on his ghostly new road song “U.S. 85,” from his upcoming LP Highways & Heart Attacks. It’s the Texas singer-songwriter’s first new recording in 40 years.

To say Beeley’s new album has been four decades in the making would be something of an overstatement. After releasing a pair of albums in the Seventies, 1971’s Gallivantin‘ and 1979’s all-too-appropriately-titled Passing Dream, the San Antonio native — having a young family to support — hung up his guitar and took up the life of a long-haul trucker.

Flashback: Andy Warhol Visits the Grand Ole Opry
In 1968, decades before reality-tv and social media, sentient artist and pop culture icon Andy Warhol said, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” A decade later he would find himself visiting a Nashville institution that had by that time been world-famous for more than 50 years.

Through his art, Warhol had become one of the planet’s most celebrated but enigmatic figures, attending glittering social events, frequenting New York’s upscale restaurants and nightclubs, and mingling at various functions with everyone from Jacqueline Onassis to John Lennon.

The Five Best Marty Robbins Songs of All-Time

Marty Robbins had kind of a rough home life since his father wasn’t all that dependable and his warmest memories were of tales his grandfather used to relate to him. At one point he managed to get away from it all when he joined the Us Navy, where he really began to pick up his love for music. Learning how to play the guitar and writing his own music he eventually came home to the Us and was even fortunate enough to get his own show. From that point he only kept getting bigger as his career began to grow

Flashback: Roy Orbison Sings ‘Pretty Paper’ on Johnny Cash Holiday Special

Review: Colter Wall’s ‘Songs of the Plains’ Is a Modern Twist on Classic C&W

Back in the day, before it was pruned, the genre was called “Country and Western music.” But cowboy songs and border narratives have always been essential to its roots, not to mention sartorial sense. Colter Wall actually hails from Saskatchewan, in Western Canada. With production help from period-conjurer Dave Cobb, he soaks his mighty baritone in reverb to reclaim a style once hugely popular — think Marty Robbins’ “El Paso” and Gene Autry’s “Ghost Riders in the Sky” — but has largely been left behind for vultures.

The set walks a fine line with its retro-fetishism,

How Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean Theme Bars Are Remaking Nashville’s Broadway

How Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean Theme Bars Are Remaking Nashville’s Broadway
Our night in downtown Nashville begins in a bank-turned-tattoo-parlor-turned-Luke Bryan-themed restaurant with a pickup truck dangling over the stage where a band is covering Maren Morris’s “My Church.” The space has six levels, eight bars, numerous light-up “Luke Bryan” signs and more flat screens than a Best Buy. But we are on the roof drinking Coors Light and eating fried sushi.

“Same kitchen, different bars,” a hostess says, referring to Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar located next door, as if she has explained it a thousand times.
