Catching Up With The Country Stars Of The 80s – The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Skaggs, Larry Gatlin, Lee Greenwood

On Friday, June 7, 2013 at 3pm I’ll be hosting a panel of former CMA winners and nominees from the 80s in the Music City Center at the CMA Music Festival, as part of the AT&T U-Verse Fan Fair X.

This is a rare chance for Country Music fans to see some the biggest stars of the 80s on one stage at the same time, sharing stories about their biggest hits and reminiscing about the events and music that shaped our industry in the 80s.

Since the CMA Music Festival is all about the fans, we want to give you a chance to ask these influential groundbreaking artists questions about their contributions to Country Music. Please leave your questions for any one of these 80s superstars in the comment section below (don’t forget to include your town and state, as we may use some of these questions during our show).
