“Wabash Cannonball” – Grand Ole Opry House 40th Anniversary Opening Live #20 WET TV

The Grand Ole Opry House 40th Anniversary Celebration on March 15, 2014 kicked off with the newest members of the Opry, Old Crow Medicine Show, leading the cast in a show-opening performance of Opry patriarch Roy Acuff’s “Wabash Cannonball.” The show began just as the very first Opry performance at the Opry House did, with video footage of Acuff and his Smoky Mountain Boys from 1940 performing the band’s signature song. That performance transitioned to footage of Acuff and the Opry cast singing the song on March 15, 1974 before finally seamlessly transitioning to the curtain going up on Old Crow and a stage full of other performers that night finishing the number for the live audience.
