The show that made country music famous is set to take some of the genre’s most popular artists to the big screen in December when its first feature film, American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry, previews in theaters across America. The made-for-cinema concert film captures on-stage Opry performances and backstage moments with Opry members Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Darius Rucker, as well as country favorites The Band Perry and Brett Eldredge.

American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry is set for a limited special engagement at select Carmike Cinemas in the US beginning December 4. Distribution across America will follow in January in partnership between the Opry and independent distributor DigiNext, a joint-venture of Carmike Cinemas Inc., a leading motion picture, alternative programming and 3-D motion picture exhibitor.

“We are excited about the opportunity to take the Opry and country music into movie theaters across the country,” said Steve Buchanan, Opry Entertainment President.  “This partnership allows us to present the Opry to fans through a previously unutilized medium and is another way for the Opry to expand its reputation as a vehicle of discovery for America’s music.”

The film will give audiences a virtual front row seat and VIP all-access pass.  Among the performances featured:

  • –Brad Paisley performing his #1 hit and the film’s title track “American Saturday Night” and current hit single “Country Nation”
  • –Blake Shelton’s award-winning “Boys Round Here” and current single “Gonna”
  • –Darius Rucker’s Grammy-winner “Wagon Wheel” as well as “So I Sang” from his current album SOUTHERN STYLE
  • –The Band Perry performing “If I Die Young,” the same song the band sang for Opry management in a backstage dressing room in 2009, earning an invitation to make its Opry debut
  • –Brett Eldredge’s first number one smash, “Don’t Ya”

“Everyone in the audience was swept away by each artist’s incredible performance,” said Bud Mayo, Managing Member of DigiNext and President of Carmike’s Alternative Programming and Distribution Division, who attended the live taping on August 31 with Carmike CEO David Passman. “The Opry production was the best I have seen and heard in 40 years in this business. Add the personal interactions with the artists between their sets and moviegoers are in for a thoroughly immersive experience from the moment they do their virtual walk into the hallowed halls of the Opry. This kind of groundbreaking event helps to fulfill the promise of digital cinema and its importance to Carmike and the exhibition industry at large.”

American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry is directed by George J. Flanigen IV. Executive Producers are Steve Buchanan, Robert Deaton, Pete Fisher, and Flanigen.

Chris Young Kicks-off “I’m Comin’ Over” Tour in Nashville!

chris young

Just days after returning stateside following the sold-out European leg of his “I’m Comin’ Over” World Tour, RCA Records artist Chris Young headlined a hometown show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater to kick off his U.S. concert tour in front of a crowd of over 5,000 fans.

“I was both excited and anxious to come home and play a show in Nashville. I knew I was going to have a lot of friends and family in the audience so I didn’t want to screw up” joked Young. “The audience at Ascend Amphitheater blew me away and I could have kept playing all night long.”

His first headlining show in Music City since 2012, Young played an electrifying, hit-packed 75-minute set for the cheering crowds, including chart-toppers “Tomorrow,” “You,” “Voices,” “Gettin’ You Home,” “The Man I Want To Be” and “Who I Am With You.” The Middle Tennessee native surprised the crowd midway through his set, inviting friend and country superstar Brad Paisley to join him on stage to perform Eric Clapton’s “Change The World.” Chris channeled Conway Twitty during “I Can Take It From There” and the audience erupted for “I’m Comin’ Over,” the title track to Young’s upcoming album, due November 13. Prior to taking the stage, Sony Music Nashville presented Chris with a plaque celebrating the single’s recent RIAA Gold certification.

Labelmates Jerrod Niemann and Cam joined Young for the Nashville show, with Eric Paslay and Clare Dunn accompanying Chris for fourteen shows October through December. For a complete list of tour dates and to purchase tickets to catch the CMA, ACM and Grammy-nominated hit-maker in concert, visit
