The Maine Ole'Opry  was started in 2005 by Joan Cole and sponsored by the Pine Tree State Country Music Assoc.,Inc.. It is incorporated under the charter of The Pine Tree State Country Music Assoc.,Inc.  In 2007 inductions into  the Maine Ole'Opry were started. Performers inducted are chosen by the Opry management.   There shall be two inductees each year unless decided differently by management. The Maine Ole'Opry is made up of  NOW performing country music artists. Artists who are no longer performing may be inducted as honorary member at management discretion. Inductees are chosen for their  talent, stage presence, dedication, knowledge  of country music, audience appreciation and how they relate to other Opry members. They must have also appeared on previous Opry shows. The reason being to see audience response.

The Silver Spur Club ( the capitol of country music)  in Mechanic Falls  has agreed to be the  "Home Of The Maine Ole'Opry".  A plaque with all inductees on it,  a banner and pictures of the inductees are on display there. To see pictures of this great club and info on them you can view their website at  http://thesilverspurclub.com/
