OPRY ENTERTAINMENT Classic Country WSM-A/NASHVILLE will be the exclusive radio source broadcasting the late County icon GEORGE JONES’ funeral services, live from the GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE this THURSDAY (5/4), beginnging at 10a (CT).
“650 WSM broadcast GEORGE’s first appearance at the OPRY in 1956, it’s only right that we broadcast his last. This will allow the millions of JONES fans around the world, who are not able to get to the OPRY HOUSE, the chance to pay their last respects to the legend that is GEORGE JONES,” said WSM GM TOM ENGLISH.
OM JOE LIMARDI added, “Based on the outpouring of listeners and artists all weekend, it’s the right thing to do in honoring an artist with such a long and storied history with WSM.”
