Can You Name These Classic Country Crooners?


No matter which channel you tune your car radio to, you'd have to be pretty out of the loop to never have heard Patsy Cline crooning about feeling so lonely and so blue. No matter what you think of country music, these classics are a must. But you'll need to be a true fan of this genre to match all of the singers in this quiz. Think of Dolly Parton's "Jolene." Tapping the toe of your cowboy boot while running through these country and western artists is optional, but highly recommended.

The Grand Ole Opry

In 1925, fiddle player Uncle Jimmy Thompson was the first to perform on a broadcast later titled the The Grand Ole Opry. Coming out of a Nashville radio station as the WSM Barn Dance, the show became known worldwide for making country music stars. George D. Hay started his show with fiddlers and harmonica players, but it expanded into hoedown bands, honky-tonk, bluegrass, modern country singers and even some comedy. Transmitting performances from Nashville’s Dixie Tabernacle and the city’s historic Ryman Auditorium, the show helped turn Nashville into Music City.

Many of country music's most iconic performers have played the Grand Ole Opry: Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, Bill Monroe, Mother Maybelle Carter, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Oak Ridge Boys, Darius Rucker, and more. In the 1970s, the Opry made a new home in Nashville’s suburbs, along with an amusement park. By the 2000s, the Opry was celebrating country on the radio, TV, and the internet. Even the devastating Nashville flood in 2010 couldn’t stop the music. The broadcast relocated temporarily, but the Opry stage has been restored, and the show is still going strong today.
