Drayton Farley is on FIRE lately.

The Alabama native has made a name for himself as a gifted songwriter with his authentic lyrics and passionate delivery, proving that he was a force to be reckoned with when he released his 2021 acoustic album A Hard Up Life.

He turned even more heads with his incredible debut full-band album Twenty On High back in March, which is a serious contender for one of the best albums of the year with songs like ”

And soon, he’ll be making his Grand Ole Opry debut.

Drayton will be stepping into the historic circle for the first time on September 13, a moment that Drayton says is validation of all the hard work he’s put into his music:

“My Opry Debut is coming up on September 13th. Those are words I never really thought I’d get the chance to say. There is a lot of hard work to do and a lot of hard miles to travel when you’re chasing a dream. Plenty of nights spent playing your songs to empty rooms and all kinds of highs and lows along the way.
Then things happen to remind you that your work is paying off and there’s a sense of validation for what you’re doing. It’s truly a great honor to be invited to play the Grand Ole Opry.”

His debut will also come just days after the release of his new EP, Kudzu Wild, on September 8.
