Several country artists have been added to the upcoming NBC primetime special, Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music.
Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Kane Brown, Lady A, Little Big Town, Old Crow Medicine Show, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Marty Stuart, Carrie Underwood and Trisha Yearwood are slated to perform during the two-hour special, hosted by Opry members Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton.
In addition to performances of original songs, the special will showcase one-of-a-kind Opry member collaborations, including Kelsea Ballerini singing “When You Say Nothing At All,” Dierks Bentley and Marty Stuart’s duet of “Pancho & Lefty,” and Lady A’s rendition of “Forever and Ever, Amen.”
Additionally, fans will be able to re-live Lady A’s surprise Opry invitation from Darius Rucker and Kane Brown’s official Opry debut.
“This special is going to capture so much of what makes the Opry a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience,” said Dan Rogers, Opry Vice President and Executive Producer. “10-year Opry member Blake and 20-year member Brad guide us through a powerful Opry debut, an Opry membership invitation given to one of country’s most awarded vocal groups, performances of some of today’s chart-topping hits and timeless songs that have rung out from the Opry stage for decades, and a look back at cherished members of the Opry family and musical moments that have come to define the Opry we know today.”
Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music is set to air on Sunday, February 14 at 9 pm ET/PT on NBC.
