I know how Stonewall Jackson and Charlie Lousvin feel. We went to the Opry a few weeks ago. We were in the second row. I am 57 years old. There were some young girls in the first row. I asked them when they got there tickets. They said they were given to them just as they were coming in. You can't blame them for it. It is because it was going to be on T.V. and they wanted to show that the young people are coming to the Opry. I can even understand a little. They didn't even want the cammra on us.

I can relate. I'm beginning to feel that the Opry is discriminating against its older fans. Just look at the turnover rate in the artists. They are constantly searching for younger and younger artists to appeal to teens. It is getting so it is near impossible to get tickets to the Opry.
