ARISTA/NASHVILLE labelmates ALAN JACKSON and BRAD PAISLEY have been added to the lineup for TOMORROW night’s (5/8) GRAND OLE OPRY shows. Due to the flooding that impacted NASHVILLE last weekend (5/1-2), the OPRY relocate from the GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE to the RYMAN AUDITORIUM, its former home.
OPRY VP/GM PETE FISHER said: “When we said ‘the show must go on’ after this week’s flooding, BRAD, ALAN and the NASHVILLE community obviously agreed wholeheartedly. We are excited about keeping the OPRY tradition alive with some spectacular upcoming shows. As OPRY member MARTY STUART said at our first show since the flooding, ‘Our family, our songs, and our spirit live on.’”
Country legend GEORGE JONES will also join the lineup for the TUESDAY night (5/11) OPRY, also at the RYMAN. Among others confirmed for upcoming GRAND OLE OPRY and OPRY COUNTRY CLASSICS performances are ERIC CHURCH, CHARLIE DANIELS BAND, VINCE GILL, LADY ANTEBELLUM, CHARLEY PRIDE, BLAKE SHELTON, RICKY SKAGGS, JOSH TURNER, CARRIE UNDERWOOD and STEVE WARINER.
