The Grand Ole Opry is set to return to its historic home – the Grand Ole Opry House – for the first time since being displaced as a result of May’s historic Nashville flood, and Great American Country (GAC) will broadcast the event live in "Country Comes Home: An Opry Celebration," tonight at 8 p.m. Central.
Among the stars scheduled to appear are Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Jimmy Dickens, Martina McBride, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Josh Turner and Keith Urban. Viewers will also get an exclusive look at the fully refurbished Opry House and beloved Opry stage where 46 inches of water stood following the May flood. No doubt plenty of attention will be focused on the Opry House’s signature element, a six foot circle of oak taken from the stage of the Ryman Auditorium, the Opry’s former home. The circle was removed from the Opry House stage, painstakingly refurbished and returned to its rightful spot center stage.
More important to fans of guitar music is that tonight’s show will be a jam that will include Ricky Skaggs, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Steve Wariner, and Marty Stuart. Learn more at opry.com.
