As usual, the Grand Ole Opry has some fantastic performers in store for their shows this weekend! In addition to the show, three performers will be signing copies of their CD on Friday and Saturday. Don’t miss out on your chance to meet these big country stars!
On Friday, The Black Lillies will be signing copies of their new CD, Runaway Freeway Blues. The group is an Americana band that plays it all! They draw their influences from rock, country, jazz, blues, and bluegrass to create something truly unique. Front man, Cruz Contreras, thickens the music with his deep baritone voice and musical stylings on the guitar and mandolin. He’s backed by Tom Pryor (guitar and pedal steel), Jaime Cook (percussion), Robert Richards (bass guitar), and Trisha Gene Brady (vocals). They made their Grand Ole Opry debut on June 12, 2011.
On Saturday, the Opry Shop will be graced with two performers signing CDs, Kacey Musgraves and Shooter Jennings! First up, Kacey will be signing her CD, Same Trailer Different Park. Kacey has been making music since she was 14! She self-released 3 albums by age 19. She garnered some notice when she placed in the Top 10 on Nashville Star in 2007. Last year she toured with Lady Antebellum before releasing her album.
Also in the shop that night will be Shooter Jennings, son of country music icons Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. Because of his parents, Shooter was basically raised aboard a tour bus and it didn’t take him long to begin picking up instruments himself. Wanting to distance himself from the country music that his parents were known for, he moved to Los Angeles when he came of age and started a punk band. After a couple of years and the death of his father, he made the switch back to country. Country music fans could not be any happier. Jennings has garnered quite the following! He’ll be signing copies of his new CD, The Other Life.
Who else will be at the Opry this week?
