Academy Award winners Robert Duvall and Billy Bob Thornton are each scheduled to make their Grand Ole Opry debuts Tues., August 18. Duvall, courtesy of Alcon Sleeping Giant Music, will serve as a guest announcer during the show and perform the song “Cheyenne”, with music producer Michael Hodges, from the original motion picture soundtrack Wild Horses. Roots-rock band The Boxmasters featuring Thornton and also consisting of Teddy Andreadis and J.D. Andrew will perform a set including tunes from the 2015 release Somewhere Down The Road. Among others scheduled to appear that evening are Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, David Nail, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Thomas Rhett.

“As we celebrate the Grand Ole Opry’s 90th anniversary, we appreciate when talented personalities from all walks of life recognize the impact of the Opry and want to join us in Nashville,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “We’re looking forward to some good music from our new friends and to sharing a fun night with them and our audience.”

Past Opry performers have included Academy Award winners Sissy Spacek, who played the Opry while preparing for her role as Opry legend Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner’s Daughter, and Kevin Costner, who has played the Opry three times with his band Modern West. Other guest performers and guest announcers have included Kevin Bacon, Jack Black, Lester Holt, Robin Roberts, and Bob Schieffer, to name a few.

Duvall has been nominated for seven Academy Awards (awarded for his performance in Tender Mercies), seven Golden Globes (winning four), and has multiple nominations and one win each of the BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Emmy Award. In 2005 he received the National Medal of Arts. His films and television series are some of the most popular of all time including The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, To Kill a Mockingbird, THX 1138, Colors, Joe Kidd, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, MASH, Network, The Apostle, True Grit, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, Falling Down, Tender Mercies, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Natural, Lonesome Dove, and Get Low.

The Boxmasters formed in 2007 and released its self-titled debut record to critical acclaim.  The band has enjoyed success on the Americana radio and albums charts, and its Opry stop is part of a summer tour.

Among other artists confirmed for Opry appearances in August are Alison Krauss, Crystal Gayle, Connie Smith, Josh Turner, and Chris Young.

Chart-topping Broken Bow recording artist Dustin Lynch was surprised by the RIAA on Friday afternoon (6/26) with a PLATINUM plaque certifying ONE MILLION in sales and streams for his multi-week #1 single “Where It’s At.”

Lynch served as a special guest panelist alongside RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman and Broken Bow VP of Promotion Lee Adams for the first “RIAA Live” event of summer 2015 at its D.C. headquarters. The audience – consisting of music industry and political tastemakers – was also treated to an acoustic performance by Lynch, including hits “Where It’s At,” “Cowboys And Angels” and latest “Hell Of A Night.”

After Lynch’s performance, Sherman stepped onstage to present him with an official RIAA-certified plaque for his #1 single “Where It’s At,” the title track of his sophomore album.

“What a dream come true!” shared Lynch. “I have an incredible team of people that believe in me and my music and work so hard and spend time away from their families…this is theirs as much as mine. Big thanks to everyone at country radio that believed in this song and chapter 2 of my music!”

“Where It’s At” marks the second RIAA-certified PLATINUM single for the talented artist who was previously honored for his debut hit “Cowboys And Angels.”

Lynch’s current single “Hell Of A Night” rocketed into the Top 15 today at Country Radio. Noted by popular website Buzzfeed as one of its “Songs You Need In Your Life…,” the scorching tune has already earned 16 million plus streams on Spotify.

Since releasing his PLATINUM debut single “Cowboys And Angels,” Lynch has launched on to the country music scene. Racking up over 30 million views on YouTube/VEVO, soaring to #1 on the MTV Music Meter and selling over 2.5 million digital singles, he brings a fresh combination of traditional influences and edgy intensity to the genre. Producers Mickey Jack Cones, Brett Beavers and Luke Wooten showcase his progressive sound throughout his latest album, WHERE IT’S AT, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart upon release and has tallied over 950,000 tracks sold to date.

The rising star is currently igniting crowds nationwide on Luke Bryan’s 2015 KICK THE DUST UP Tour with additional tour stops at major festivals and headline club dates throughout the summer.
