The guys had two incredible nights at The Opry, Vince Gill introducing them, joining them onstage, PPL joing Vince on his tune. A magical night in PPL history for sure.

Here's a few remarks from Grand Ole Opry historian Byron Fay's blog.


" Great show tonight; although wasn't really impressed with any of the non-Opry performers except Pure Prairie League."

"I agree with Fred about Pure Prairie League. Pretty good that a band famous as country rock sound the most country on the Opry compared to any of the new folks."

"I've seen PPL a few times in recent years and these guys still get it done big time. Great band. Sensational pedal steel from John David Call who is better than ever !"
Mike Sweeney

"I see some great comments here re: Pure Prairie League.I'll add that PPL's Flat Tire Merle was sizzling hot with an enormous boost from steeler John David Call who is nothing short of remarkable.Center stage on the Opry suits him just fine. "
