Grand Ole Opry members Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker along with Chris Janson, Charles Esten and more are hitting the stage Tues., June 7, as the Opry kicks off its CMA Music Fest Week with two star-packed shows, 7 and 9:30 p.m.

The music begins earlier in the afternoon with a free Opry Plaza Party presented by Humana® featuring Warner Bros. recording artist Janson, who continues to enjoy the success of his debut album Buy Me A Boat. The title track became the singer-songwriter’s first #1 single, was certified platinum, and won the iHeartRadio Award for “Country Song of the Year.” Opening the Party will be Stoney Creek Records recording artist Lindsay Ell.
