Welcome to our web site!

This is a society for the preservation of the dream and legacy of Mr. Hay of his idea and inspiration he had of keeping the music "simple as sunshine".  Mr. Hay's ideal has fallen by the wayside by those in the past years having changed his ideology.
It is our goal to bring the attention to the information of the origin of  the inspiration of the Grand Ole Opry and the importance of Mr.Hay's  work in keeping the old time, mountain and country music in it's purity as he wanted it. We are a historical Society, we are a non-profit incorporation in the State of Missouri.
