Dan Does the Opry - 03/19/14
When you're former CBS evening news anchor Dan Rather, there isn't a lot you haven't seen. In Rather's case, there aren't many places you haven't been either. This afternoon I learned from the Grand Ole Opry that Rather was about to knock off another line from his bucket list. Rather has signed on to be a guest announcer this week on the Friday Night Opry.
The Opry is welcoming guest announcers to help celebrate 40-years of shows at the Grand Ole Opry House in Donelson. Artists Rather will be rubbing elbows with include: The Oak Ridge Boys; Charlie Daniels; Kathy Mattea and The Grascals. And as Dan Rather used to say at the end of his broadcasts, "that's part of our world tonight."
