We will be opening the Opry building back up for weekly shows beginning Saturday, April 23rd. Our seats had to be removed and destroyed. Until we buy new seating, we are asking everyone to continue bringing lawn chairs just as you did last summer for the outdoor shows. The doors will open at 5:00 and the show will begin at 7:00. The concession stand will be open.
We are deeply saddened to share the news that Bill Gardner, a founding member of the Oldfield Opry, passed away Saturday afternoon, April 2, 2022. Bill, Johnny Walker, Hank Thompson and Steve Beyers formed the band Kountry Konfusion. They started the Oldfield Opry in 1977 in an old general store building on a corner of the lot where the current Opry building stands. Memorial services for Bill will be held Wednesday at Barnes Family Funeral Home in Ozark. Visitation will be at noon, followed by the funeral service at 1:00 p.m. Here is a link to Bill’s obituary – https://www.barnesfamilyfunerals.com/obituary/william-bill-gardner/.
