NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Carol Lee Cooper has closed out a 40-year career as a background singer on Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.
Carol Lee was one of the first things I noticed the first time I worked the Opry, right after I ogled those three black Emmons steel guitars, belonging to Sonny, Hal and Weldon, on the stage. Now she’s retiring. Sad to see her go.
