All new Billie Jean Osborne's Kentucky Opry set to take stage

 The 27th season of Billie Jeans Osborne's Kentucky Opry summer show is just around the corner and the Opry cast was hard at work preparing for opening night as they held their last dress rehearsal Thursday. This season's show will be like seeing the Ky Opry for the very first time as there have been a lot of changes made to the show.

 "Right now on stage the Kentucky Opry is preparing for the 27th season of Billie Jean Osborne's Kentucky Opry summer show and so there are a lot of cool things going on stage tonight here at the Mountain Arts Center. I think what we are trying to do is reach the people who have been to the Kentucky Opry before and let them know that what they are going to see this year is completely different. You're going to see a different set. We've never done a set design like this We've never had the instrumentation that we have this year. We've never done some of the songs, some of the melodies that we're currently doing. Just a lot of stuff we have never done here at the Mountain Arts Center before."

 Opening night for Billie Jean Osborne's Kentucky Opry summer show is set for Saturday from 7:30-10pm at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. For tickets call 1-888-MAC-ARTS or log onto www.macarts.com
