New York is about to get "Redneck Crazy," y'all!

The Grand Ole Opry and Southwest Airlines are celebrating the Opry's 88th birthday and Country Music Month by bringing Love and Theft, Tyler Farr and Cassadee Pope to the Big Apple for the Bryant Park Concert Series.

"Nashville's New Music in New York" features country music's hottest new stars performing acoustic sets on the Southwest porch at Bryant Park—well known for its role in New York's Fashion Week and Project Runway. Opry VP Pete Fisher says, "We’re looking forward to presenting to our friends and fans in New York some of the artists who’ve really excited our audiences during recent Opry performances. It’ll be great to extend our birthday party and Country Music Month beyond Music City to New York City.”

And to add a touch of authenticity to the show, the Opry will be taking their signature microphone stand and a replica of the sacred circle along for the trip. Personalities from New York's own country station, NASH-FM, will be on hand to host the festivities.

Each of the acts will be playing separate days, with Tyler kicking things off Sept. 30, Love and Theft on Oct. 3 and Cassadee on Oct. 7. For more details and for a chance to win tickets to one of the shows, go to opry.com/nyc.

The official Opry birthday bash takes place Oct. 4 and 5 in Nashville.
