Hosted by night-time personality Eddie Stubbs, the show will feature one-on-one interviews with both singer Barnett and Cline’s widower, special guest Charlie Dick.
“Our ‘Intimate Evening’ series with Eddie Stubbs is a rare opportunity for WSM listeners to get up close and personal with the legends and superstars that we play on the air,” says WSM Program Director Joe Limardi. “You can’t buy tickets to this series, so the only way to see the show is to win passes over the air or online through our website.”
The April 6 show with Mandy Barnett will broadcast live from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. CST at the Ford Theater inside the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn. It will also be available for online streaming at the WSM website, www.WSMonline.com.
