Following Eddie Stubbs’ announcement that he planned to retire from Nashville’s WSM 650AM and The Grand Ole Opry, Gene Wason issued a statement via his Official Facebook Page:
‘Say it ain’t so!
We’re going to miss the amazing Eddie Stubbs on WSM Radio and The Grand Ole Opry.
Eddie knows more about country music history than almost anyone, and it was always a joy to sit and talk to him in an interview.
It feels like the end of an era with his retirement, but we wish him well.
Hopefully we’ll see him if he’s visiting backstage at The Opry sometime’
