The 2019 season for Billie Jean Osborne’s Kentucky Opry kicks off with its premier performance on Saturday, June 15, in the Willard and Lucy Kinzer Theater of the Mountain Arts Center, the Prestonsburg venue that has been home to the Opry since the facility opened in 1996.

Opry Director and Emcee Clayton Case notes that the cast is eager to get back on stage.

“I get so excited when this family comes together to build and create a new show,” Case said. “This cast, band and crew never cease to amaze with the pure talent, work ethic and creativity they exhibit year after year.” The creative team has already been busy working on themes, songs and medleys for this year’s summer season, plus the comedy antics of “Munroe” will be in full force. 

Opening night for Billie Jean Osborne’s Kentucky Opry will be Saturday, June 15. The show continues every Saturday evening through Aug. 3, with the final show being billed as a “Bluegrass Night at The Opry.”  

Tickets range from $12 to $16 and can be purchased by visiting,, by phone at, (888) MAC ARTS, or at the MAC Box Office.
