MCA/NASHVILLE artist JOSH TURNER will appear on tonight’s NBC-TV’s “Nightly News” to discuss the reopening of the GRAND OLE OPRY HOUSE in NASHVILLE, which was damaged during the floods in MAY that left the stage under four feet of water.
TURNER said: “The OPRY is the ultimate home of Country music. It's a place where the people are friendly and care about our genre. I'm honored to be an official member of the OPRY family. It gives me the chance to play a part in the OPRY's legacy to keep Country music alive and introduce it to new fans every week.”
JOSH and his wife, JENNIFER, will be touring the newly refurbished OPRY HOUSE, which has been home to the GRAND OLE OPRY for more than 35 years, and spending time in its newly decorated dressing rooms, each of which is now themed to celebrate some of the peoples and styles of Country music.
“This is an important year for the OPRY,” TURNER added. “The OPRY celebrates its 85th birthday this year, and in those 85 years, it has never missed a broadcast. Even during the floods, the OPRY show went on as it staged its shows in various venues in NASHVILLE. Country music is so inspiring, uplifting, and relaxing to listen to. And the OPRY is the ultimate source of that kind of music and all its different forms and styles. It's a national treasure for sure.”
