Bonnaroo Announces Grand Ole Opry Stage Lineup
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Bonnaroo probably isn't "country." But this year's music festival announces the return of their Grand Ole Opry stage.
The Grand Ole Opry stage takes place on Thursday, June 13 during the four-day, all-genre music festival taking place in Manchester, Tenn.
This year's Grand Ole Opry stage includes Opry announcer Billy Cody emceeing the event along with Opry members Old Crow Medicine Show and Ricky Skaggs and Riders In The Sky. Other performers include Steve Earle, Morgan Evans, Ashley Monroe, Molly Tuttle, and Wendy Moten. Even the Opry Square Dancers will be performing.
The Grand Ole Opry at Bonnaroo will be broadcasted live via Opry.com and WSMOnline.com along with Opry and WSM mobile apps and the iconic Nashville's 650 AM-WSM.
"The Opry's inaugural trip to Bonnaroo last year was nothing short of amazing," says Sally Williams, senior vice president of programming and artist relations for Opry Entertainment Group, in a press release. "All of us fortunate enough to be part of that performance loved watching some of the world's biggest music fans connect with the Opry, many for the first time. It definitely was one of the highlights of 2018, and when we look at the lineup of artists who have signed on for next month's show, we have no doubt that performance is going to be just as memorable."
Only on extremely rare occasions has the 93-year-old Opry not taken place outside the historic stage.
