Can you tell me whether the country-rock band BR459 is a member of the Grand Ole Opry?
"BR549 is not a member of the Opry, but they make frequent guest appearances," said Gina Keltner, talent coordinator for the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn.
Keltner said decisions on which bands or individuals were invited to be members of the Grand Ole Opry were made by "Opry management."
Members added since 1993: Joe Diffie, Alison Krauss, Charley Pride, Hal Ketchum, Martina McBride, Steve Wariner, Diamond Rio and Trisha Yearwood.
BR549, which features Lawrence native Chuck Mead on guitar and vocals, played May 21 at the Grand Ole Opry.
