Congratulations to Jerry Douglas for being named an artist in residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame. According to the official announcement, "Dobro in hand, Douglas will host four memorable evenings in August and September, each carefully curated by the artist to illustrate different facets of his glittering career. He will hold court in the Museum’s Ford Theater on August 19 and 27, and September 16 and 30; each show begins at 7 p.m."

I wish a little more care with spelling had been shown in the the announcement's headline:

“Dobbro’s matchless contemporary master,” JERRY DOUGLAS TO LIVEN FORD THEATER as Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s 2008 ARTIST-IN-RESIDNECE
