The Marshall Tucker Band, best known for songs like “Can’t You See” and “Heard It In A Love Song,” will play the Grand Ole Opry stage Saturday night. The band made their Opry debut last fall, but this performance will mark the first time they have stood on the stage at the new Grand Ole Opry house. The debut was made last November in an “Opry at the Ryman” performance. On that night, the band received a standing ovation after performing “Can’t You See.”
The Marshall Tucker Band formed in 1972, and they celebrate their 40th anniversary this year. In addition to the Marshall Tucker Band, Saturday’s Opry performance is also scheduled to feature performances by Mark Wills, Mike Snider and Jaida Dreyer. The show will also feature Riders In The Sky, which are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their first Opry performance this week.
The Opry is broadcast at 7 PM Central Time on 650 WSM radio. The performance can also be heard via the Grand Ole Opry or WSM smart phone apps or by listening online at Opry.com.
