Aside from the toll taken on human and animal lives, one of the most heartbreaking results of May's record-setting floods in Nashville was the damage done to the Grand Ole Opry. The American landmark, home to a staggering amount of country music history, sustained exensive water damage and was forced to relocate its shows to a variety of other area venues while repair work went underway.
However, there's finally happy news to report: The Opry will open again--and ahead of schedule! On September 28, the doors will open in grand style with an all-star concert dubbed "Country Comes Home." Scheduled to appear are Brad Paisley, Little Jimmy Dickens, Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, the Charlie Daniels Band, Diamond Rio, the Del McCoury Band, Montgomery Gentry, Blake Shelton, Mel Tillis, and Josh Turner.Read More »from Flood-Damaged Opry To Reopen Ahead Of Schedule; All-Star Concert Planned
