The older country music stars deserve to be recognized and not rediculed due to their age. Peter Fisher owes not only the "senior" singers but all of the gray hairs on the state and in the audience a very sincere apology. I also believe he needs to be released from his duties at the Opry and replaced with a human.

We are not coming to Nashville to the Opry in June like we planned. Saw in AARP Bulletin they don't want old people so surely they will not like the money we planned to spend. WE will come thru Nashville but hopefully not even buy gas there and get out of the state as quick as we can also.
