NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Aug. 15, 2001

Curb Records recording artist HAL KETCHUM will be the host of the Grand Ole Opry on WSM radio this coming Saturday, August 18.

Known as the longest running live radio show in the world, the Grand Ole Opry broadcast will feature Ketchum as host during the 8:00 P.M.--8:30 P.M. (CST) time-slot.

"This is the first time I've hosted the show and I'm very excited!" said Ketchum. "Having grown up listening and watching the show, it's such an honor to be on the radio program as the host."

An Opry member since 1994, Ketchum is set to release his new album, LUCKY MAN, on September 4. The album was produced by Rodney Crowell and features 10 new songs: She Was Something, You're Everything, You Can't Go Back, That's How Much You Mean To Me, Loving You Makes Me A Better Man, Dreams Of Martina, She's Still In Dallas, Two Of The Lucky Ones, Richest Man In Texas, Living Life Loving You, She Is and Don't Let Go, Ketchum's rendition of the classic rockabilly tune.

"Over the past few years the music I create has become a reflection of my life," said Ketchum. "The new album, LUCKY MAN, is a true expression of the man I am today."

Ketchum first drew attention in 1991, with his highly acclaimed second album, PAST THE POINT OF RESCUE, and achieved commercial success with Small Town Saturday Night, which charted to No. 1 and was the number-one single for that same year. Scoring over fifteen top ten hit songs, including Small Town Saturday Night, I Know Where Love Lives and Hearts Are Gonna Roll, Ketchum's heart-felt lyrics and dynamic performances endear him to music fans of rock, folk and country.
