One of the most eclectic country-rock bands of our time has set a date in the Garden City.  The Mavericks, probably best known for 90s hits such as "What A Crying Shame",
"All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down" and "Dance the Night Away" have set October 17 for the date of their show at Missoula's historic Wilma Theater.

Although best known for their success in the 1990s, the Mavericks have been active for decades and their press release describes several distinct phases the band has endured.

"The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, has gone through three distinct phases since it was founded in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ‘90s. A long hiatus starting 2003 when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 which held long enough for them to recently celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary. Now, The Mavericks have ushered in the fourth phase of their evolution with the #1 Billboard debut of their first-ever, all Spanish album, En Español, released on the band’s own Mono Mundo label. Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, as the title suggests, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi to reimagined Afro-Cuban classics."

26 Country Stars You Won't Believe Aren't Grand Ole Opry Members

Fifteen living CMA or ACM Entertainers of the Year are not members of the Grand Ole Opry and a few of them barely recognize the vaunted stage. George Strait, Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson are three legends who rarely play the Grand Ole Opry. Why?

That answer is often difficult to determine but this list suggests reasons where appropriate. Membership into the Grand Ole Opry comes with an obligation to play the show frequently, but that's often set aside (Barbara Mandrell is an inactive member, for example). Only living artists are considered and once a member dies, he or she is no longer a member.

As of 2023, there are over 70 members of the Grand Ole Opry. Historically, nearly 250 men, women and groups were members. So it's a select group that excludes several Country Music Hall of Famers.
