June 14, 2012 at 10:15 AM (PT)
THE GRAND OLE OPRY is set to recognize its most loyal fan, PAUL ECKHART, with the first-ever OPRY FAN AWARD this SATURDAY, JUNE 16th while he and his family enjoy the performances from the front row. ECKHART and his family have never missed an OPRY weekend in 40 years, after visiting the show the night the family moved to NASHVILLE from PENNSYLVANIA.
“Of course there have been some true standout moments over the past 40 years, but every OPRY show has been special, each one has been different, and every single one of them has been entertaining. I can’t imagine having spent my weekends anywhere other than the GRAND OLE OPRY.”
“PAUL is family. Like so many other OPRY fans, he’s built an amazing connection with the show and with the artists who perform on the OPRY stage. None of us can imagine looking out on a weekend OPRY performance and not seeing PAUL in the crowd. We hope to make this SATURDAY night’s show his most memorable yet!” said GRAND OLE OPRY VP/GM, PETE FISHER.
