The night is a part of The Opry show’s 90th anniversary celebration that will span nine months and support nine causes including the “Salute The Troops,” which will benefit the MusiCorps and USO. Throughout the month of May, a percentage of the proceeds from Opry ticket sales will go to the cause when fans mention the code “SALUTE.”
