If you’ve ever wished you could take a time machine back to the best decade of country music (the ’90s of course), you’re in luck.
No, Doc from Back to the Future isn’t here with the DeLorean time machine or anything, but The Grand Ole Opry has created the next best thing…
The “Opry Loves The ’90s” experience.
From May 16th to the end of 2022, the iconic country music venue will host a new interactive tour exhibition, special in-show Opry programming, ’90s themed Opry Plaza Parties, and surprise artist collaborations, all dedicated to the good ol’ days of country music.
Dan Rogers, Vice President/Executive Producer of the Grand Ole Opry, expressed his excitement for the new experience:
“For nearly a century, the Opry has been dedicated to honoring country music’s rich history and dynamic presence.
With ‘Opry Loves The ‘90s,’ we’re excited to celebrate a formative decade that made an impact on country music that will be felt forever thanks to the influence of artists known now by just one name: Garth, Trisha, Vince, Reba and Shania, among many more.
For me, the country music of the ‘90s made me want to move to Nashville and be a part of what happens in this great music community.
Country music fans of all ages seem to have their own ‘90s country stories, and just as the Opry did during that decade, we aim to help them celebrate those stories, create new ones and experience some of the songs that made many of us huge fans 30 years ago.”
The experience begins with a tour exhibit chock full of the artists, songs, and songwriters of the iconic decade, including iconic stage wear and artifacts representing career milestones for ’90s country stars, and even performances from Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Terri Clark, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Trisha Yearwood, and more.
It will also give fans photo opportunities, and a digital gaming console for ’90s country trivia.
