GAYLORD Country WSM-A/NASHVILLE night guy and GRAND OLE OPRY announcer EDDIE STUBBS will take listeners on a trip to CAPITOL CITY when he presents "Mr. STUBBS Goes To WASHINGTON." The special will chronicle the day earlier this summer when Country music was the topic of conversation at the WHITE HOUSE as the second installment of a new music series hosted by FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA. STUBBS served as emcee and introduced OPRY members BRAD PAISLEY, ALISON KRAUSS and CHARLIE PRIDE.
The special will premiere this THURSDAY (8/13) at 9p (CT) and features performances from that day including PAISLEY's "Welcome To The Future," KRAUSS' Everytime You Say Goodbye," the PRIDE classic "Kiss An Angel Good Morning" and the PAISLEY/KRAUSS duet "Whiskey Lullaby." Also included will be interviews that were conducted with all of the artists on the WHITE HOUSE Lawn and STUBBS' thoughts and reflections on the day.
In addition to the radio special, www.wsmonline.com will also feature a special "Mr. STUBBS Goes TO WASHINGTON" section that includes photographs and video from the WHITE HOUSE event. Written reflections on the day from STUBBS, PAISLEY and TENNESSEE Gov. PHIL BREDESEN will be posted on the site as well.
