Country legend Jack Greene visits the Northwest

When country music legend Jack Greene performs at the Haynie Opry on Saturday, July 26, it might be the first time a country star of his status plays a show at a local grange since Loretta Lynn performed at the Delta Grange in the 1960s.

At least that's what Matt Audette, coordinator of the Haynie Opry, speculates.

Greene's upcoming performances at the Haynie Grange will mark his first return to Washington state in several years.

Greene still travels the country, plays the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn., and is even scheduled to play a two-week tour in Ireland next year.

"I love it," Greene said of his busy schedule. "Seeing old friends and making new friends all the time, getting to see the world. It's a joy."

He always signs autographs and poses for pictures with fans after shows.

Greene is planning on playing 45 minute to hour-long shows at the Haynie Opry Grange on Saturday. Matt Audette and The Circle of Friends Band will provide backup for Greene.
