The Grand Ole Opry will kick-off the 2017 CMA Music Festival with a killer lineup of shows. On Tuesday, June 6, the Opry will feature two shows with Opry members Carrie Underwood, Del McCoury and Bill Anderson, along with Dustin Lynch and more taking the stage for the 7 and 9:30 p.m. shows.
Underwood’s performance at the Opry comes just months after celebrating her 100th appearance on the famed stage.
“I grew up dreaming of one day performing here and maybe even becoming a member. That dream comes true over and over each time I take the Opry stage,” Underwood said at the time. “Here’s to the next 100!”
The celebration continued backstage where the Oklahoma native celebrated with a special cake, decorated by her best friend, and owner of Ivey Cake in Franklin, TN, Ivey Childers. She also received 100 pink roses in her dressing room, courtesy the Opry.
Fans can catch music early into Tuesday afternoon with a free Opry Plaza Party show featuring “Sunday Morning” group Parmalee.
The Opry will keep the party going with performances from Blake Shelton, Steve Wariner, Trace Adkins, Charley Pride, Roy Clark, Oak Ridge Boys, Scotty McCreery, Brandy Clark, and Sara Evans later in the week.
