The Floresville Opry fun continues Thursday, Aug. 2, as talented singers Madelyn Abrameit of Marion, Harold Watts of Kingsbury, and Danny and Esther Auldridge of Poteet take the stage in the Floresville Event Center.

Madelyn Abrameit is a 12-year-old seventh-grader at Marion Middle School. She has two brothers, two sisters, and is a triplet. She began singing when she was 9 years old, after her grandmother gave her a Loretta Lynn CD. Her love of Lynn’s music continues to this day and is a big influence on Madelyn’s personal musical style. Madelyn can be found most days entertaining customers at her parents’ restaurant, The Belmont Social Club. Madelyn’s hobbies include sports, her 4-H projects, and of course, music!

Harold Watts grew up in Caldwell and Guadalupe counties, loving and listening to country music from the “Grand Ole Opry” and “Louisiana Hayride.” Not having a talent for playing a musical instrument, he learned the songs and sang along with the artist on the radio. After retiring, he was introduced to karaoke by some friends. After a couple of years, he went to the Kingsbury Opry, signed up to sing, and was hooked. Over the past nine-plus years, he has sung at a number of jams, oprys, and local nursing homes. He lives in Kingsbury with his wife, Sandra, who is his No. 1 fan.

Danny Auldridge was born in Bakersfield, Calif. Coming from a family that loved music, it naturally had a big influence on him and he loved it, playing the fiddle and guitar. He started performing at the early age of 5, playing all over the United States with the family band “Barney & His Boys.” Danny has had the pleasure of playing with artists such as Hank Thompson, Freddy Fender, and Frenchie Burke. In June 1974, Danny met his talented wife, Esther, of Beeville.

Esther Auldridge performed on KBOP radio, singing with the Calvary Baptist Church pastor and some church members from Pleasanton. Esther started performing with her husband in 1997. They have played at places such as the Oyster Fest in Rockport, Cabaret in Bandera, and many others. They look forward to meeting everyone at the opry.

If you haven’t yet experienced the thrill of the opry, what are you waiting for? Get your shoes on, grab your keys, and drive to the Floresville Event Center for a guaranteed good time!
