The GRAND OLE OPRY inducted OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW on FRIDAY (8/16). The band was invited by OPRY member MARTY STUART during their concert in CLEVELAND. They will be formally inducted on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th at the GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE in NASHVILLE.
"Inviting OLD CROW to become our next member is truly exciting for us," said OPRY VP/GM PETE FISHER. "For one, OLD CROW has grown before our eyes from entertaining Opry-goers for free in the OPRY Plaza a dozen years ago to rank today among the most respected and popular acts in music. It’s also exciting that in many ways OLD CROW looks and sounds a lot like some of the string bands of the 1920s which helped first propel the OPRY to national prominence."
