The Opry, radio’s longest-running live program, has only 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.
“Every week, the Grand Ole Opry showcases an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind mix of country music’s new stars, superstars, and legends for country music fans from around the world. We’re excited to deliver a special show featuring some of radio’s biggest current hit-makers who are also some of the most popular artists who visit our stage for all our friends in country radio when CRS returns to town next month,” said Opry Vice President and GM, Pete Fisher.
