Grand Ole Opry To Make Debut At CRS 2013


By Caitlin Rantala
Country Radio Seminar has announced that a performance of country music’s most famous show, the Grand Ole Opry, will kick-off CRS 2013 on Wednesday, Feb. 27. The event will be held inside the Performance Hall at the Nashville Convention Center.
Artists confirmed to perform are Grand Ole Opry members Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker andVince Gill along with Dustin Lynch and Scotty McCreery. Additional performers will be released in the coming weeks. The two-hour event will commence at 7 p.m., immediately following the annual CRS Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception. All CRS attendees can attend.
“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 General Manager Pete Fisher.
Bill Mayne, CRS Executive Director, notes “This marks the first time in the history of the seminar, which is over 40 years, that we welcome the Grand Ole Opry to our stage. It has been a long time coming, but will be well worth the wait. My thanks to Pete Fisher and the Opry staff for allowing me to present this show on the opening night of CRS 2013, as both events are such a great fit for each other.”

    Everyone is so right - hopefully this is a step in the right direction for radio play - the opry does love Scotty and he certainly appreciates it.

  7. Scotty has to feel honored that the first time CRS is bringing the Opry to him that he is one of those chosen to show what COUNTRY music is about--right up there with the big guns. I hope radio comes around this year but for sure McCreerians are only getting bigger and Scotty is only getting better. He is truly a bright star with a long career in Country Music.

    2. Scotty is NOT behind Luke . He is WAY AHEAD. He has not been behind since the challenge began. Of course we should continue to vote to keep him WAY AHEAD. McCreerians are doing just fine rocking.
