Sean Dietrich at the Grand Ole Opry March 24


Former local Sean Dietrich (he recently moved to Alabama) is a columnist and novelist known for his commentary on life in the American South. In addition to Bay Life, his work has appeared in Southern Living, The Tallahassee Democrat, Good Grit, South Magazine, Alabama Living, the Birmingham News, Thom Magazine and The Mobile Press Register, and he has authored seven books.

Hi will indeed be entertaining an audience at The Grand Ole Opry soon! A recent post on his Facebook page states:

“All my life, I have fit the definition of an abject loser. I am a fatherless child. I am a middle-school dropout. I am a high-school-equivalency guy. A fledgling community college graduate. A former construction worker, a subpar student, and i use por grammer.

But on March 24, 2023, the year of our Lord, I will be playing music and telling stories on “The Grand Ole Opry.”

I want you to know that you’re invited. Because you are the one who put me here.”
See Sean on March 24, 2023, 7 p.m. at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. Purchase tickets at
