One of country's music's most famous landmarks is now on a list of federally protected buildings, as the legendary weekly show gets ready to celebrate its 90th anniversary later this year.
FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:
The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville is not even as old as the famous weekly jamboree broadcast from there. But, now the house is on the national registry of historic places. Opening night was 1974 and Minnie Pearl shared a stage with President Nixon...
(Pearl) "And I was late getting in as it was. I started in out there, and one of them handsome secret service fellers frisked me all up and down... So, I turned around, went out, and came back in again."
The Opry has actually been on the air since 1925. That's 90 years as the show that made country music famous.
