Will “BS” Apologize At The Opry Tonight, Yes Or No?
B S (THAT IS BLAKE SHELTON)
WILL APPEAR ON THE GRAND OLE OPRY MARCH 1 & 2, 2013
Blake Shelton joined the Opry on October 23, 2010. Since that time, he has only made 4 Opry appearances. Being on Friday March 14, 2011 (2 shows that night), Saturday March 15, 2011 (1 show) and Tuesday September 6, 2011 (1 show) He has made no Opry appearances since that September 6, 2011 date. A pretty poor record in my opinion, but also in my opinion, not too surprising.
WELL THINGS HAVE CHANGED, SHELTON IS SCHEDULED TO APPEAR ON THE OPRY TOMORROW, FRIDAY AND ALSO SATURDAY NIGHT. WE SHALL SEE IF HE WILL DELIVER A FORMAL APOLOGY FOR HIS WORDS THAT CAUSED A LARGE AND UNCALLED FOR ISSUE IN THE COUNTRY MUSIC INDUSTRY, AND WILL NOT BE SOON FORGOTTEN.
I have said in previous comments that he needs to go to the middle of the Opry stage, standing in the circle that he has spoken so RESPECTFUL about. Then he should publicly apologize to all members of the Opry, to all the legends in country music, and to the fans, many of which are older generation. We shall see what he does, and if by chance he does apologize, I will not be issuing any statement that he did the right thing, I will not commend him for delivering an apology, and I will have a difficult time believing what he might say. I have made it clear that he had the opportunity to go back and delete that part of the interview with GAC, BUT HE OPTED TO JUST LET IT GO BECAUSE THAT IS THE WAY HE FEELS.
Not sure of the times he will be on the Opry either night. The Opry comes on the air at 7PM CST time and no doubt he will be the host of whatever spot he is on and probably the 7PM slot.
