Sadly, after many years of music, laughter and fun,
the Liberty Opry has closed its doors
We had the honor and privilege to sing, play and laugh alongside some truly gifted musicians and vocalists, and a great comedian. We met and became friends with so many wonderful people. To our wonderful customers, we thank you for your past support and friendship. Most of all, we want to thank the Liberty Opry Band for their incredible talent and unwavering loyalty.
Rick Burton, drummer extraordinaire
Jim Cox, amazing lead guitarist and vocalist (the Cox family were the original owners and operators of the Liberty Opry)
Michael Garrett, our newest and fabulous bass player
Calvin Gainey, awesome keyboardist, vocalist, sound engineer
Andy and Jimmy Lingenfelter and Mike Loftin– horn players for many specialty and oldies shows
Brian Thomas, phenomenal steel guitarist (and a few other instruments)
Rodney Smith, great fiddle player / violinist
Larry “Booger Lee” Etheridge – comedian with the greatest antics, facial expressions and delivery
Special mention and thank you to:
Judy Etheridge and Kathy Sowell, the “ticket booth” ladies. Always there and always ready.
Ray Sowell – played acoustic guitar, known for his ‘Ray Price voice’, and emceed for many years at the Opry
To ALL of the excellent guest singers and entertainers that graced our stage – locally and nationally – we thank you and applaud you.
Even though we have closed, the Opry Band is available to play at other locations and events.
