The Grand Ole Opry will celebrate its 87th birthday October 5-6 with star-studded Opry lineups, backstage tours, free music in the Opry Plaza and more! On October 5, Rodney Atkins, Steve Wariner and more will take to the Opry stage. The next night, the Opry will welcome Jason Aldean, Little Jimmy Dickens, Ray Stevens and more for two Opry shows.
Besides a larger-than-life birthday cake during the night’s Opry shows, there will be a special Opry Birthday Party concert at 1 p.m. on October 6 featuring Ricky Skaggs. After his performance, Ricky will sign his new album, Music To My Ears, in The Opry Shop. The Opry Plaza will be busy with games, food and free music throughout the day.
