CDJ, Pride to Share Opry Stage

Carolyn Dawn Johnson will join Charley Pride for a duet on the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday (Dec. 7). Johnson says that her first concert, as a child, was to see Pride in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, and she still has the autograph he gave her. “I remember as a child, I was just wowed by his warm, rich voice,” she said. “One of my favorite songs was ’The Snakes Crawl at Night,’ and I’d sing it all the time, but I was too young to know it was about cheating!” Patty Loveless and Lonestar will also appear on Saturday’s Opry. All four acts will be included in the Grand Ole Opry Live segment airing on CMT at 8 p.m. ET/PT. 12/6/02
