The Grand Ole Opry has added a second show to the Tuesday Night Opry on August 19 as Opry member Carrie Underwood returns to the Opry stage just three weeks after two sold-out performances in late July. The shows will also feature performances by fellow Opry members Trace Adkins, Del McCoury Band, Craig Morgan, and more as well as Mark Chesnutt, Joel Crouse, and others. Making his Opry debut will be MCA’s Sam Hunt, who, going into his fall tour with CMT On Tour, has the highest debuting new artist single in the history of Country Aircheck with his Top 25 and climbing “Leave the Night On” off his four-song album preview X2C (available digitally Aug. 12) and full album due out Oct. 27.
Crouse will sign copies of his debut CD, Even The River Runs, in The Opry Shop before the shows from 5:30-6:30p.m.

Trace Adkins and his Sarepta Gentlemen’s Club band will bring the big man’s biggest hits to the Fox & Friends Summer Concert stage on Friday (8/1). The hour-long concert is open to the public and will showcase the hitmaker’s long list of smash singles on-air and online, with a feature performance of “Girl In Texas,” which he wrote twenty years ago upon arriving in Nashville.

On Saturday (8/2), Trace travels to Boston’s Fenway Park to perform the national anthem opening the Red Sox v. Yankees, the second of a three-game series, which will be broadcast nationally on FOX. A proud supporter of our country’s armed forces, Adkins previously performed the anthem at Fenway in July 2012 and in St. Louis, MO in 2011 for Game 2 of the World Series.
Adkins has also added vocal duo Jill & Kate to his touring band. Since June when he returned to the road, Trace’s super-charged shows have electrified audiences and now he’s upped the ante again.
“Having the girls on the road has really given a new kind of energy to the performances. Plus, with the addition of these soulful voices, the Sarepta Gentlemen’s Club may just have a shot at salvation after all,” joked Trace.

The rugged entertainer has always honored his hometown, even naming his band the Sarepta Gentleman’s Club after his hometown of Sarpeta, LA. Adkins is also looking forward to returning to his hometown next week to play a special show at the Muddy Bottoms ATV & Recreation Park on Saturday, July 5th.
