The Texas Opry Theater is proud to welcome the former Granbury Live Band to their new home stage in Weatherford.

They will be known as “The Amazing Made in Texas Show Time Band” which actually is a name given to them by Granbury Live's creator, the late Tom McRae. The Jukebox Journey Show is a show directed and produced by Roger Ramsey, the band’s bass player and leader.

Jackson Nightingale will headline the show with "Princess" Alecia Echols, Stephanie Little, Zac Wilson and a surprise new addition to the group with Linda Morgan, a former member of the Granbury Live Theater Group and currently with the Rock Box Theater in New Braunsfels, along with the Amazing band members Christian Hutton on lead guitar, Mike Echols the blue-eyed fiddler, Roger Ramsey on bass, Joe Tom McDonald on keyboards and Josh Rodgers on drums.

Nightingale will be an occasional vocal addition to the group. Nightingale spent 10 years in Branson co-hosting the Jennifer In The Morning Show with Jennifer Wilson. Nightingale's talent, polish and professionalism will be well received by all of the fans of the former Granbury Live Band. Jukebox Journey will commemorate three decades of American music from the 50's, 60's 70's and even some 80's.
