Each show emanates from the Opry stage within the famed six-foot circle of wood, which was moved from the Ryman Auditorium to center stage of the Grand Ole Opry House when the Opry took up residence in its new home in 1974. The circle holds personal significance on innumerable levels for all the artists appearing on the show. Turner was officially welcomed to the Opry family there by Vince Gill, who says he’ll always remember singing his career-making “When I Call Your Name” while the King of Country Music, Roy Acuff, looked on just a foot away. In addition to career highlights on the Opry stage, Adkins took time out from his Opry debut to propose marriage and years later announced from the circle that he and his wife were expecting a baby. Bentley celebrated his official Opry induction inside the circle with his beloved dog Jake. Daniels invited one of his favorite acts, Montgomery Gentry, to join the Opry family while they stood on the circle of wood, then returned with the duo to sing “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” on the night the Opry House re-opened following last year’s Nashville flood.
Host Stubbs is already familiar to many RFD-TV viewers, appearing as the on-camera announcer for the network’s “The Marty Stuart Show” the past three years. He’s a 16-year veteran of country station 650 AM-WSM and of the Grand Ole Opry announcer staff. He was this week named as a 2012 inductee into the Country Radio Hall of Fame.
