Keith Urban & Darius Rucker Guarantee a Grand Night at the Grand Ole Opry

 

Grand Ole OpryNashville, TN – “Welcome to the show that made country music famous, the Grand Ole Opry!” It started off as a radio show back in 1925. It is now the longest running program of all time where millions can tune in regularly to Opry broadcasts via a mobile app, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Nashville’s 650 AM WSM, and on www.opry.com or www.wsmonline.com

The concerts feature multiple generations of artists from up and comers to the legends who have been members of the Opry for decades. Membership is a privilege – one is asked to join the Opry. With that honor comes some obligations such as playing at the Opry a certain number of times per year.

Clarksville’s Riverfest announces Brandy Clark as headliner for 2016 Festival

 

Clarksville's Riverfest CelebrationClarksville, TN – Riverfest, presented by the City of Clarksville and Miller Lite, is pleased to announce Brandy Clark will be the featured headliner at the 2016 Festival. Brandy Clark will take the main stage as the headlining event on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 at 9:00pm. The concert is free and open to the public.

For Brandy Clark, the dream she harbored in her small hometown of Morton, Washington, was to be a country singer. Sure, once she moved to Nashville, she had successful cuts as a songwriter [The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow”], but being an artist in her own right was a dream she had stopped dreaming until two years ago when her first album, the stunning 12 Stories, debuted.
