Become part of history while attending the upcoming APSE summer conference in Nashville.

APSE is planning a night out at The Grand Ole Opry, the longest-running live radio program in the country. Broadcast on radio station WSM (650-AM), it’s two hours of live country music performances. It’s been on the air since 1925 and broadcast on hundreds of radio stations nationwide.  Every major (and minor) country music act has appeared on the show: from Johnny Cash to Carrie Underwood, from Charlie Pride to Blake Shelton.

We are planning to attend the Tuesday, June 19, broadcast (begins at 7 p.m.; we’d leave the hotel around 5:45 p.m.). Currently, the Charlie Daniels Band, Dylan Scott and Craig Morgan are scheduled to perform. More acts will be added in the coming days.

Tickets for the event are not included in your conference registration fee. When you registered, you were asked if you (and/or family members) would like to attend the outing. If you’ve already registered and have changed your mind and would like to join us, let Glen Crevier know by May 24. Our cutoff to buy the tickets is May 24. We may rent a van or bus to get us to the Opry (about an eight-mile drive from the conference hotel) or we may take individual cars.

If you want more information, visit ww.opry.com. You can click on the seating map and see the various seating prices. We are going to order the balcony seats for $45-55.

If you want more information, please contact conference host Dave Ammenheuser at 615-476-8288 or dammenheus@gannett.com.
