Some of country music’s favorite artists will be part of the excitement as the Grand Ole Opry® celebrates its 84th birthday with birthday shows and special events Oct. 9 and 10. The weekend will include three Opry shows, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers in concert, backstage tours, and an Opry Plaza Birthday Party presented by Martha White. Among those scheduled to appear on Birthday Bash Opry shows are Diamond Rio, Jimmy Dickens, Joe Diffie, Kathy Mattea, Montgomery Gentry, Lorrie Morgan, and Josh Turner. Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers will celebrate the Opry’s Birthday with a Saturday afternoon concert in the Acuff Theatre.

Among the Opry fans from across the country who will descend on Nashville for the annual celebration is radio personality/author/songwriter Delilah, whose eponymous nationally syndicated radio show attracts millions of listeners nightly. Delilah will serve as an Opry guest announcer on Saturday’s first Birthday Bash show.
