The 2019 Season for Billie Jean Osborne’s Kentucky Opry kicks off with its premier performance on Saturday, June 15 in the Willard and Lucy Kinzer Theater of the Mountain Arts Center (MAC), the Prestonsburg venue that has been home to the Opry since the facility opened in 1996.

The creative team have already been busy working on themes, songs, and medleys for this year’s summer season. Many surprises are in store, and fans can expect the great vocal medleys and supreme musicianship from the band. As always, the comedy antics of “Munroe” will be in full force.

Kentucky Opry Director and emcee Clayton Case notes that the cast is eager to get back on stage.

“I get so excited when this family comes together to build and create a new show,” Case remarks. “This cast, band, and crew never cease to amaze with the pure talent, work ethic, and creativity they exhibit year after year.”

Opening night for Billie Jean Osborne’s Kentucky Opry will be Saturday, June 15th. The show continues every Saturday evening through August 3rd, with the final show being billed as a “Bluegrass Night at The Opry.”
