Country music performers Bill Monroe, Ricky Skaggs, Riders in the Sky and the Whites will appear in Florida on the Grand Ole Opry's first road segment in 35 years, officials said. The 30-minute segment of the famed country music radio show is to be broadcast Jan. 1 from Tampa, Fla., during festivities for the National Football League Hall of Fame bowl game, officials said last week. The remaining 3 1/2 hours of the show will originate from Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House. In the early 1950s, two segments of the Opry were broadcast from New York and one from Arlington, Tex.
