Urban And Paisley To Relaunch Grand Ole Opry

KEITH URBAN and BRAD PAISLEY will help to celebrate the reopening of country music mecca the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday night (28Sep10), four months after severe floods wreaked havoc on the fabled venue.
Opry bosses were forced to close down the Nashville, Tennessee auditorium in May (10) when heavy storms caused water to sweep through the venue and destroy the stage, dressing rooms and retail store.
They have spent an estimated $17 million (£11.3 million) on renovations and now the building is set to relaunch with an all-star line-up led by Urban and Paisley.
The duo will also be joined by the likes of Martina MCBride, Blake Shelton and Dierks Bentley for the show, titled Country Comes Home: An Opry Celebration, which will be broadcast live online.
The May (10) floods did little to dampen the spirit of the Opry and executives insisted the show must go on, with scheduled performances taking place at various venues around Nashville while country music's original home was restored to its former glory.
