American Idol Will Feature Grand Ole Opry Themed Shows

By Betsy Thorpe

Next week the popular television show, American Idol will feature country music by presenting Grand Ole Opry themed shows on March 17th and 18th. American Idol contestants will perform songs first made popular by Opry members and special guest Randy Travis will sing his classic country hit song I Told You So with Carrie Underwood, the first country American Idol.

This song was “written by Randy Travis, he took it to No. 1 in 1988. It is a track on one of his most successful albums, Always & Forever. The following year, the song earned the American Music Award for Favorite Country Single. It appears unlikely Carrie will enjoy the same success with the song, but she recorded a beautiful version for her Carnival Ride album.”
