September 23, 2010 at 12:35 PM (PT)
The GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE in NASHVILLE will hold its 85th birthday celebration with its two-day BIRTHDAY BASH on OCTOBER 8th and 9th. The events will feature performances by TRACE ADKINS, CRYSTAL GAYLE, DOLLY PARTON, TAYLOR SWIFT, and many more. The bash lands just ten days after the OPRY’s planned SEPTEMBER 28th return to the GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE after having been displaced by flooding last SPRING.
PARTON said: “There’s so much to celebrate this year, in particular. I’m looking forward to seeing all the good Country music fans that weekend, and I just hope good lookin’ guys like TRACE ADKINS are as excited to come see me when I hit 85 as they are to celebrate with the OPRY this year! Of course we don’t have to worry about my 85th for a long, long time!”
Broadcaster CHARLES OSGOOD, anchor of “CBS Sunday Morning” and of CBS RADIO NETWORK’s “The Osgood File” will join the party OCTOBER 8th. OSGOOD will take to the piano to be a part of the OPRY’s “I’m With The Band” celebration which invites celebrities to sit in with the OPRY BAND.
Additional OPRY BIRTHDAY BASH components are set to include backstage tours of the newly-renovated OPRY HOUSE; a SATURDAY afternoon salute to Country comedy featuring T. BUBBA BECHTOL and MIKE SNIDER; and a free OPRY PLAZA BIRTHDAY PARTY featuring music, games, and more.
