MOJO Time Machine: James Brown Gets Funky At The Opry

James Brown was in Nashville recording vocals for his disco’d up 45, It’s Too Funky In Here, when he received a unique proposal. It was country music legend Porter Wagoner, inviting him to appear at the new Grand Ole Opry House, the venerable country music institution’s home since March 1974. Wagoner felt the presence of The Godfather Of Soul could provide a little appeal-widening pizzazz. “It’s nice to have a shot in the arm once in a while to make something exciting happen,” he reasoned. And so it was that on March 10 the Opry got funky, as The Hardest Working Man In Show Business appeared on its hallowed stage.

GREEN BAY (WLUK) - You can call James Brown the semi local boy but true underdog story of this year's Green Bay Blizzard roster.
