Country music fans, fret not. The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree is taking a hiatus from its weekly live broadcasts. The Midnite Jamboree will be airing archived shows each Saturday in January.

The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree is the second longest running radio show in history. Its legacy dates back to the 1940s when Country music icon Ernest Tubb began using the format to promote his record store and to allow budding talent to be heard through a wider medium. Over the years the show has seen appearances by entertainers the likes of legends Hank Williams, Sr., Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Elvis Presley and today's super stars including Travis Tritt, Marty Stuart and Garth Brooks.

The Midnite Jamboree will return on February 1, 2014 with host Larry Stephenson. The line up for the month of February includes Mike Scott, Jimmy Bowen and the 100 year birthday celebration for the show's founder, Ernest Tubb, with an appearance by his nephew Glenn Douglas Tubb on February 8, 2014. Make your plans to tune in or attend in person.

The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree is broadcast through the facilities of 650AM WSM radio in Nashville, Tennessee. The event takes place Saturday nights at midnight in the Central time zone. Live events originate at the Texas Troubadour Theater adjacent to the Ernest Tubb Record Shop #2 on Music Valley Drive in Nashville, Tennessee. Admission is always free. For more information, call 615-889-2474.
