Worlds collided Sunday night in Manchester, Tennessee, at Bonnaroo when the Grand Ole Opry staged its first-ever show from the famed music & arts festival. Opry members Old Crow Medicine ShowBobby BareDel McCoury Band, and Riders In The Sky all performed for the Bonnaroo crowd, as well as Joshua HedleyLANCONikki Lane, and Maggie Rose.

The occasion was a rare one: in its 92-year history, the Nashville-based Opry has only taken its iconic show outside Music City a few times. Past shows have traveled to prestigious venues such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
