Clay Walker Performs New Single “Right Now” at Opry

Clay Walker performed hisnew single, “Right Now,” at The Grand Ole Opry last week. Fans, who haven’t already, can purchase the song here

“Working with Shane (Minor) and Wade (Kirby), who are not only tremendous musicians, but great friends, was really inspiring,” said Walker. “Shane thought that we should write something that would showcase what he calls ‘the bluesy feel of my voice,’ so he thought to call in Wade. What we came away with was, for me, ‘soulful magic’ – a song that’s for everyone that has let themselves be vulnerable to the possibility of love.”

The Newest Family Member of the Grade Ole Opry Is…….

Mutt Nation

The Grand Ole Opry joined forces with Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation this past week to promote pet adoption and to send several four-legged friends straight from the home of country music to loving homes of their own. The Opry family fell particularly hard for a labrador/terrier mix named Charlie and decided to welcome him to the fold, with a number of Opry staffers sharing responsibility for his well-being. Before making his Opry stage debut in Lambert’s arms on Tuesday night, Charlie had been found along with his two littermates dropped on someone’s property in rural Okalahoma. A good samaritan drove them to Lambert’s Redemption Ranch in early July. The three puppies were among those that made the trek to Music City last weekend, and all three found Nashville homes.


Charlie is now enjoying some time learning the ropes of being a good Opry dog and is said to be selecting proper attire for a visit to the Opry for its annual “Opry Goes Pink” show on Tuesday, October 27.

Throughout October, Opry guests are invited to use the code “PAWS” when purchasing Opry tickets to designate a portion of those ticket proceeds benefit MuttNation. Sales of special items including dog collars and “Puppy Opry” prints available in the Opry’s Nashville retail stores and will also help benefit the Foundation. Fans can also bid on autographed merchandise and experiences at throughout October with all proceeds benefiting MuttNation.
