The Grand Ole Opry and Southwest Airlines in partnership with Warner Music Nashville are returning to the heart of New York City for three evenings of free performances at the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park. The installment of the Opry’s Circle in the City series will continue to feature new acts who have become Opry fan favorites: Devin Dawson, (Sept. 6); Michael Ray with opener Morgan Evans (Sept. 7); and Ryan Kinder, (Sept. 15). All shows are in partnership with New York’s NASH FM 94.7.
The artists will travel to Manhattan with the Opry’s signature microphone stand and will continue the Opry tradition of throwing down a replica of the famed circle of wood from center stage at the Opry House, a la an “Opry Circle Throwdown.” Fans can watch each of the shows live on the Opry’s Facebook page. Dawson made his Opry debut earlier this year, while Kinder debuted in 2016, Ray in 2015, and Evans in 2014.
NASH-FM 94.7 will host each event and will offer VIP seating to listener winners. Additional seating is open to the public and will be based on a first-come first-served basis.
Show times are:
September 6: 6:00 p.m.
September 7: 7:00 p.m.
September 15: 6:00 p.m.
Opry artists will soon have a new place to play in New York, as the four-story Opry City Stage restaurant, bar, and live performance space is scheduled to open in Times Square in Fourth Quarter 2017.
