GRAND OLE OPRY - THE 1960'S

The Opry began the '60s by inducting a bevy of young talent. Patsy Cline, Hank Locklin, George Hamilton IV, and Billy Walker all joined in the first year alone. And no fewer than nine future members of the Country Music Hall of Fame would enter the Opry fold. The era also had its share of tragedy, including the untimely deaths of Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Johnny & Jack's Jack Anglin, Jim Reeves, Texas Ruby, and Ira Louvin.
