One of Jim's career highlights was headlining a breakthrough
concert at New York's famed Carnegie Hall. Also on the show were
other Grand Ole Opry stars, shown arriving here with Jim. From
the bottom of the ramp upward are Faron Young, Minnie Pearl, Grandpa
Jones, Jim, and Bill Monroe (in doorway). Not pictured but also
on the show was Patsy Cline. The group flew to New York on a TWA
plane renamed "Grand Ole Opry Skyliner" for the occasion
(see markings upper left).
