Classic Country: Grand Ole Opry Stars of the 50s

Posted: Updated:

Captured on dazzling 35mm color film, the biggest stars of the Grand Ole Opry from the 1950s shine like never before in this cherished collection. 

Filmed in Nashville and comprising 130 hours of footage, this series features all the names that made country music and the Grand Ole Opry world famous: Ernest Tubb, Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones, Bill Monroe, Marty Robbins, “Little” Jimmy Dickens, Chet Atkins, June Carter – and many, many more!

These are memories you’ve come to cherish – Ray Price wailing the honky-tonk classic “Crazy Arms,” Webb Pierce and Red Sovine dueting on “Why Baby Why,” Jim Reeves crooning the rhythmic “Mexican Joe.” Great songs by Chet Atkins, Mother Maybelle Carter, Roy Acuff, Marty Robbins, Kitty Wells, Minnie Pearl, Ernest Tubb, George Morgan and Grandpa Jones are all here in live performance, looking astonishingly fresh and new.
