Saturday Song: Lisa Marie And Melody “Two Legends”

October 10, 2009

Each Saturday on “Mother Church Of Country Music” a song will be featured that has either been on my personal playlist, or has struck me for some reason during the past week.  As we celebrate the 84th birthday of WSM and the Grand Ole Opry I thought the song by Lisa Marie (no, not THAT Lisa Marie) and Melody might be a great way to start this feature off on my blog.  While the singers are not household names, the words of the song fit the occasion, and the images on the video are perfect.

Therefore this song is dedicated to Grant Turner & George D Hay.   Both of these men were vital to WSM, and the world’s longest running radio show.  George Hay was the one who started the Opry  after first blowing his steamboat whistle and then saying,  ‘Let her go, boys’.

Grant Turner is one of those radio announcers that I listened to as a teenager.  For a grand tribute to Grant Turner, click here.
