The past few years have been very difficult and with heavy hearts we are announcing the closing of the Liberty Opry.  We have tried to keep it going, however, we can no longer operate and maintain the facility. 


We have had the honor and privilege to sing, play and laugh alongside some truly gifted musicians and vocalists, and a great comedian.   We have met and become friends with so many wonderful people.  We thank you all for your support and friendship.  Most of all, we want to thank the Liberty Opry Band for their incredible talent and unwavering loyalty. You simply amazed us with your music on each show.  


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

Brian Thomas, phenomenal steel guitarist (and a few other instruments)

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

Andy and Jimmy Lingenfelter and Mike Loftin – horn players for many specialty and oldies shows
