It was already fitting that the funeral for the country music legend would be held at the Grand Ole Opry.  Now it looks like The Possum's memorial service will turn into a musical tribute with several of Nashville's biggest stars performing a musical tribute or at least saying a few words at the service. The station will also carry the Tribute Service live on their website beginning tomorrow morning at 11.
