After a three month run at the Ryman, The Grand Ole Opry will return to its’ rightful home tonight!
The Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® will return to the Grand Ole Opry House after a three-month run at the historic Ryman Auditorium tonight. Scheduled to appear this weekend are Opry members Josh Turner and Bill Anderson as well as special guests including Keith Anderson, Grammy® winners The Oak Ridge Boys and Sandi Patty, Chris Young and more.
In celebration of the Opry’s first night back at the Opry House, the Opry and Turner are launching the first sweepstakes on MyOpry, opry.com’s video and photo sharing site. Inspired by Turner’s current hit single “Why Don’t We Just Dance” from his album HAYWIRE due in stores Feb. 9, fans can upload videos of themselves dancing to the single to MyOpry.com for a chance to meet Turner at the Opry later this year. Fans who upload videos will be entered in the contest, and their dance moves will be posted online. Later this spring, fans will be able to vote for their favorite dancer/s from among six finalists, and one winner will receive a trip to Nashville including accommodations at Gaylord Opryland Resort, tickets to the Opry, the chance to meet Turner, and more.
Among the artists scheduled to make Opry appearances later in February are Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Jewel, Miranda Lambert, Craig Morgan, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Mel Tillis, and Steve Wariner.
Opry performances are held every weekend of the year and on Tuesdays beginning March 2. To plan an Opry visit, call (800) SEE-OPRY or log on to opry.com. Turner’s album is available for pre-order at www.JoshTurner.com and at http://awe.sm/43SD4Country Music Photo Gallery
