The lineup for the GRAND OLE OPRY in NASHVILLE this weekend includes artists who have together amassed more than 65 GRAMMY wins.
Blues artist KEB’ MO’, who has three GRAMMYs to his credit, has been added to the lineup, along with VINCE GILL, ALISON KRAUSS, DAN TYMINSKI, THE OAK RIDGE BOYS, MARTY STUART and GRETCHEN WILSON. THE DOOBIE BROTHERS and SARAH DARLING are also set to make their OPRY debut. DARLING will sing a duet of “Bad Habit” with GILL for her debut.
“When I was a little girl my grandpa used to tell me, ‘One of these days you’ll make it to the GRAND OLE OPRY.’ It’s here!” said DARLING. “As a singer, it really is a dream come true to play the stage where so many greats have played. I’m so excited to get to play the OPRY for the first time! Not only because VINCE GILL is introducing me, and singing with me on a song that I wrote, but because my grandfather will be in the audience. It’s going to be an amazing moment.”
Among artists coming in MARCH to THE OPRY stage are THE BAND PERRY, LITTLE BIG TOWN, JOSH TURNER, BLAKE SHELTON and CARRIE UNDERWOOD. For complete lineups and ticket information, visit www.opry.com.
