‘CSI': Robert David Hall Goes to the Grand Ole Opry
CSI fans would know that Robert David Hall is more than the show’s resident coroner, with plans to publish photos of the dead in a book, and a knack for the blues. You’ve seen it in some episodes: he’s also quite a good singer.
He recently released his first country music album, Things They Don’t Teach You In School, and some of the reviews I’ve seen suggest it’s pretty good. Now, Hall is planning to pursue his music career further, with an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville this Saturday.
“I’ve been listening to the Opry since I was a little kid,” the 62-year-old actor told The Tennessean. “I wanted to play guitar ever since I heard Roy Rogers and Gene Autry in the movies. I wanted to be a musician since I was 7 years old.”
While music was his first interest, he ended up doing some acting after a car accident forced the amputation of his legs. Music was still in his sights, but acting earned more for him — so his recent moves proved to be the fulfillment of a childhood dream.
“I’m 50 percent nervous about the Opry and 50 percent looking forward to it like I’ve never looked forward to anything else,” he said. “All I want to do is be in tune and sound good. How many people get the opportunity to play on the Opry stage?”
Hall will also perform on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Monday.
