Grand Ole Opry Adds Shows To Celebrate Historic Total Eclipse 2017 In August

The Grand Ole Opry will bring out plenty of its own stars as one of the universe’s biggest stars goes dark on Monday, Aug. 21 during the Total Eclipse 2017.

The Grand Ole Opry has added two more shows to its weekend lineup, with two Saturday (Aug. 19) performances and two Sunday night (Aug. 20) shows.

Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Wynonna, and Charles Esten are set to play The Sunday (Aug. 20) shows.

The Opry’s eclipse celebration continues with two Total Eclipse Plaza Parties on Sunday, Aug. 20 and Monday, August 21. Guests can expect live music on the Plaza stage, commemorative gifts and eclipse glasses, and an array of themed food and drink, including BBQ and specialty eclipse cocktails. The Opry will feature a one-of-a-kind Nashville Total Eclipse soundtrack Aug. 20 to accompany the approximately two minutes of eclipse totality.

Also marking the total eclipse, Opry House Backstage Tours including an August 20 post-show tour and tours throughout the day August 21 are set to recognize Opry artists whose career achievements have eclipsed all others in the field.

The first Aug. 20 show announced earlier this month is sold out, and tickets for the August 20 9:30 p.m. second show will go on sale Thursday, July 27 at Noon CT.
