Grand Ole Opry Performances June 29 – July 3

This week at the Grand Ole Opry, you’ll get two chances to catch up with two popular artists and groups for the chance to get an autographed copy of their CDs. On Friday, June 29, head to the Opry Shop for the chance to get a signed Leaving Eden CD from the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Then, settle in for a performance by them and other favorite stars. On Saturday, June 30, Craig Campbell will be in the shop, signing copies of his debut, self-titled album.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops have been together since 2005, entertaining audiences with their old-time string band sound. In 2010, they won the Grammy Award for “Best Traditional Folk Album” for their CD Genuine Negro Jig. This collection of four banjo, guitar, fiddle, tambourine and mandolin-playing musicians mix in a little bit of beatboxing with their folk sound. They’ve been featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack with their song “Daughter’s Lament,” and just released their seventh album, Leaving Eden, in February. Friday night from 5:30-6:30, get the chance to get a copy of the new CD. Then, join the Drops for an incredible performance as they take the stage with Craig Campbell, Canaan Smith, Jim Ed Brown and more.

On Saturday, Craig Campbell is coming back for a second night of musical entertainment. First, catch up with him in the Opry Shop where he will be making an appearance to mingle with fans and sign copies of his debut CD. Campbell’s music is always down-to-earth and relatable, and his powerful voice awed fellow country artist Luke Bryan. Bryan encouraged him to write his own songs and record demos, and eventually Campbell was noticed by Michael Powers from Bigger Picture Group, who fell in love with his sound. Before the show, where you are also bound to fall in love with him, get the chance to get a signed copy of his new CD.

Campbell will be joined by Elizabeth Cook, John Conlee and more of your favorite artists.
