Grand Ole Opry Returning To Full Capacity For Performances

For the first time in more than a year, the Grand Ole Opry is opening to 100% capacity. The venue is reopening in that fashion next Friday for a show featuring the Oak Ridge Boys and Lorrie Morgan.

On Saturday, Lady A will perform their first Opry show as members, joining Morgan and Ryan Hurd.

That’s not all.

“The Opry’s annual ‘Salute The Troops’ show honoring members of the U.S. Military is scheduled for May 29 and will feature Lauren Alaina, as well as Opry members, Luke Combs and Chris Young, among others,” WKRN-TV reported.

The Grand Ole Opry, located in downtown Nashville, has been open since 1925 and has honored country music and its history ever since.

Nashville lifted all restrictions late last month, setting May 14 as the date for businesses and venues to return to 100% capacity. That day marks six weeks since COVID-19 vaccinations became widely available in Tennessee.

    • No!! They do hold an event or 2 at the Ryman a year but all other shows are at the Opry. It’s certainly not in downtown as the article suggests. It’s actually a pretty pretty solid 15 minute drive from downtown if there is no traffic.
