(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 3, 2015) – The Grand Ole Opry is to return to Country Radio Seminar for the kick-off night of CRS 2015 on Feb. 25, 2015 at the Nashville Convention Center.
The star-studded lineup includes Chase Bryant, Eli Young Band, Lady Antebellum, Lee Brice, Mickey Guyton, Mo Pitney, Oak Ridge Boys and RaeLynn. The event will begin at 7 p.m., immediately following the annual CRS Opening Night Welcome Reception. All CRS registrants can attend, with both seating and standing room available. The Grand Ole Opry at CRS is sponsored by My Well-Being Powered by Humana.
Since 2012, Country music’s most famous show has made its mark on CRS and brought star-studded shows to standing room only crowds. With the Opry’s signature barn backdrop and famous microphone stands on stage, the Nashville Convention Center is transformed to give audience members a real taste of the Opry and the Grand Ole Opry House in the middle of CRS.
“The Opry at CRS has become one of our favorite shows of the year,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “We look forward each year to showcasing for our country radio friends from across the country the Opry’s unique brand of entertainment, which features superstars topping the charts, legends of the genre who have paved the way for those superstars, and new artists who have caught our attention and excited Opry audiences since the previous year’s CRS Opry.”
The Opry, radio’s longest-running program, has rarely staged shows outside its regular program schedule and its permanent home (the Grand Ole Opry House) or its winter residence (Ryman Auditorium). Past Opry performances played outside the show’s home venues include performances staged at prestigious theaters such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
CRS 2015 will be held Feb. 25-27 at the Nashville Convention Center. To register for CRS visit www.CountryRadioSeminar.com.
