RED BOW Records’ artist Brooke Eden fulfilled a lifelong dream of performing at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night (Nov. 19). Eden made her debut on the historic Ryman Auditorium stage alongside legendary country artists Bill Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Connie Smith and Ray Stevens.

“I remember the very first time I got to witness what that room feels like, and the only way I can describe it is like baptism day at church. I remember feeling so blessed to just be in the presence of that sacred ground and thinking that could be me one day!” reflects Eden. “I am so grateful that day finally happened!”

The vocal powerhouse rocked a performance of infectious girl-power anthem “Diamonds” and a cover of Hank Williams Sr.’s “Lovesick Blues,” returning to the stage for a second show the same night. Eden’s current single “Diamonds” is rising at country radio and is featured on debut EP, Welcome To The Weekend.
