However The Opry is ALWAYS looking for good talent. Good singers are plentiful, but The Opry is looking for guests that are uncommon. The Opry is looking for something unique or rare. For instance… a girl singer that can also play sax or harmonica. Guys that can sing, play guitar, and play fiddle, Cloggers, Kids that can sing and play an instrument of any kind.
- What year did the Kentucky Opry open?
Spring of 1988. (see Clay’s book)
- How did the Opry get started? Clay Campbell began playing music in 1963. He traded a saddle and pig for his first guitar. After performing in clubs and bars for 17 years he became a Christian and married Barbie Williams from the Minneapolis Minnesota area and began a new life. In 1987 they visited the Kentucky Lake area and saw there were no music shows here and decided then and there that Kentucky Lake would be a great place to raise their three boys and build a music show. The Kentucky is now in it's 22th season.
