Pickin’ and a Grinnin’: A Night at the Opry
The Grand Ole Opry is one of American Music’s greatest traditions, shaping the landscape of American music culture. It launched the careers of everyone from Bill Monroe and Roy Acuff, to Hank Williams and Chet Atkins. Comedians like Minnie Pearl and ‘String Bean’ Akeman found their stardom with the Opry. And legends like Cash, Parton, Wynette, and the unmatched Willy Nelson all owe their fame to the Opry stage. Pickin’ and a Grinnin’: A Night at the Opry is a merry riot of musical expression, chronicling the success of the Opry and the musical styles that made it such a powerhouse in the world of radio. Featuring some of Flat Rock’s most recognizable musical talents, this show is sure to have the crowd stomping, singing, and begging for more! From bluegrass to honky-tonk, blues to rock n’ roll, and tin pan alley to pop standard, this epic night of music will have everyone singing along and celebrating the Opry’s brightest stars, and the bad boys that got thrown out.
