SHOW NAME CHANGED ON THIS DAY IN 1927

The Grand Ole Opry is a weekly country-music stage concert in Nashville, Tennessee. It was founded on November 28, 1925, by George D. Hay as a
one-hour program called the "barn dance" on
WSM radio. The name was
changed when the phrase "Grand Ole Opry" was first uttered on the air 
on December 10, 1927.

                             


George Dewey Hay (November 9, 1895 – May 8, 1968)
