Porter Wagoner

Feature

Friday, June 22, 2007

In the 1960s and ‘70s, Porter Wagoner was Nashville royalty. His television variety show helped keep the Grand Ole Opry alive. This month, a new Wagoner album comes out on a rock label, but don’t call it crossover: as Waylon Jennings once said, “Porter couldn’t go pop with a mouth full of firecrackers.” Produced by Trey Kay.
