"Gospel Sing" Night!
Saturday, June 10, 2017
7:00 p.m. Evening Event

Zellie's Opry House was originally a church, so it gives us great pleasure to have gospel music ringing through the rafters.  

It's time again for our "GOSPEL SING" event.  The Zellie's Band will entertain with a set of music and then after a quick intermission, we turn on the House lights, pass out the song booklets and the audience will join in singing gospel favorites. Tickets will not be needed for this event—Zellie’s Opry House will put out the donation box for those who feel so inclined.  Join the Zellie’s audience choir as they raise the rafters with the gospel good stuff! Doors open at 6:00 p.m., with the music beginning at 7:00 p.m.  

Let the toe tappin’ and hand clappin’ commence!

Ben Watlington

Hometown favorite (and ours!) and East Tennessee State University Bluegrass, Old Time & Country Music graduate Calder Baker is coming home for the weekend and he's rounded up a couple of our favorite ETSU bluegrass students, Ben Watlington and Max Etling to make the trip north with him.  When you get three bluegrass musicians together, you've almost got a band...all they needed was a mandolin player.  

We suggested several.  

However, the Calder, Max, & Ben had a plan.  

You guessed it...they wanted "Aunt Terri" to sit in with them.

This could get interesting, but it's guaranteed to be fun.

We hope you're in the House to witness when

"Aunt Terri" steps out with the bluegrass boys.
