Floresville Oprys have never been known to be short on talent, and the one coming up on Thursday, Nov. 7, is no exception.

Patrons will get to their feet as featured headliner Darrell McCall, a country music performer, brings down the house with his honky tonk and traditional country musical style.

McCall was born and raised in New Jasper Township, Ohio. At the age of 15, he landed a job as a disc jockey on a local Ohio radio show on Saturday mornings. After graduating from high school, McCall joined the military and was stationed in Kentucky. In 1958, after finishing his duty in the Army, McCall moved to Nashville and worked for various artists including Faron Young, George Jones, and Ray Price. Next, he began to tour with the bands of Young, Price, and newcomer Hank Williams Jr.

In 1959, he joined the pop band, “The Little Dippers,” who released the top-10 pop hit “Forever” in 1960. McCall began an acting career in 1965 and appeared in numerous films including “Nashville Rebel,” “Road to Nashville,” and “What Am I Bid.” He recorded the hit duet “Lily Dale” with Willie Nelson, which became a top-40 hit and was awarded the “Best Duet of 1977.” McCall’s final top-40 hit was “Long Line of Empties.”

Along with McCall, other Opry favorites set to perform include Mona McCall, Julia Weaver of Floresville, San Antonio singer/guitarist Jim Fischer, La Vernia singer/songwriter Liz Austin, and retired San Antonio firefighter Conrad Gonzales.

General admission is $10 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the Wilson County News and Wilson County Public Library. Reserved tables, which seat 10, are also available for $120. All proceeds will benefit the community through the Wilson County Historical Society.
