Opry Spotlights Bill Monroe

Grand Ole Opry member Ricky Skaggs will lead an all-star tribute to the “father of bluegrass,” Bill Monroe, during Grand Ole Opry Live Saturday (Feb. 10) at 7 p.m. CT. Skaggs will be joined by Steve Wariner, The Whites, Patty Loveless, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Travis Tritt. Last year Skaggs released Big Mon: The Songs of Bill Monroe, a Grammy-nominated tribute album that features performances by all his Opry guests. The Opry continues its limited engagement at its former home, the Ryman Auditorium, through February.
