Jim Ed Brown Returns to Opry Stage

Legend's return this weekend to celebrate being declared Cancer Free.

Living legend Jim Ed Brown will return to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on Friday, January 30 and Saturday, January 31, following a four-month absence for treatment of lung cancer. Brown will appear both nights during the 8:45 p.m. CT segment, and will sign copies of his new CD, In Style Again, at the Opry Store on Saturday from 9:15-10 p.m.  Fans can listen to the performances live as they stream on wsmonline.com.

In other exciting news for Brown, he was given an “all clear” report by his doctors on January 19 stating that his cancer is officially behind him. “I am in remission,” he stated. “There are not enough thanks for the prayers, well wishes, and support I’ve received during the toughest time of my life. I am so grateful.”

The gracious star was invited to join the Opry in 1963, when Ernest Tubb asked Jim Ed and his sisters Maxine and Bonnie, to join the august establishment as The Browns. As a 50-plus year member, Brown considers the Opry his “second home,” and can think of a better place to re-launch his remarkable stage shows.
