OPRY TURNS 80

The Grand Ole Opry may be 80 years old this year, but it's still young at heart with the spirit of country music. The Opry will celebrate its 80th birthday next month, continuing throughout 2005. Events include "An Evening With The Grand Ole Opry" multi-city tour with a special performance at New York's Carnegie Hall. That November 14 event, held on the eve of the CMA Awards in New York City, will feature Opry members Trace Adkins, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss + Union Station, Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley, among others. Also scheduled is the Opry's 80th "Birthday Bash Weekend," scheduled for October 14 and 15 in Nashville.
