This really is not "new", but new to our page. Texarkana is a very unique lil' town....for a variety of reasons, one being that part of the town is in Texas..the other part is in Arkansas. Not only are two states involved, but Texarkana is the home of TWO COUNTRY MUSIC OPRIES....our own MAYTAG OPRY and the OAK LAWN OPRY, owned and operated by Mr. Henry Matthews. Our show is on Friday nights and the music show at the Oak Lawn is every Saturday night, so the folks in this area can enjoy great country music two nights a week! If you are not familiar with the Oak Lawn Opry we hope you will take a moment to visit their website...then go check them out in person on Saturday night!!
We now have EMAIL directly to the site.
