Clarification on room reservations at the Kelly Inn. They require a two night minimum stay. They do this because many exhibitors only stay Thursday evening as they head home after the exhibit hall closes on Friday afternoon. A majority of members stay Thursday and Friday evening. The two night minimum is intended to have rooms available for members staying two nights.

With nearly 30 years of experience working beside many of the legends of country music including Little Jimmy Dickens, Del Reeves, Tommy Cash and other Opry greats, Gary West has a unique perspective and a strong reverence for the timeless music he grew up with. In addition to his many years performing on the world famous Grand Ole Opry, he has also toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, and Europe.
With a love and reverence for classic country music, West has developed a remarkable show which is a tribute to many country legends including Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and many other greats. With his uncanny ability to channel not only the spirit but also the sound of these legends, West brings their music alive on stage every night. His audience is full of an interesting mix of longtime classic country fans and a whole new generation who are excited to discover this enduring music for the first time.
