Opry Entertainment has announced the launch of Opry NextStage, a year-long collaboration with four rising country artists: Riley Green, Tegan Marie, Tenille Townes and Travis Denning. The collaboration will include live performances, strategic marketing support and short-form documentary style storytelling created by Opry Entertainment’s award-winning content team. Throughout the year, Opry Entertainment will work closely with artist teams to amplify their initiatives using assets from across the company’s brands, venues and channels.
Each Opry NextStage artist will perform on the Grand Ole Opry at Ryman Auditorium in December. Townes will perform both shows at Opry at the Ryman on Dec. 7. Tegan Marie is scheduled for Dec. 8. Green will make his Opry debut on Dec. 11, and Denning, who just made his Grand Ole Opry debut last week, will return to Opry at the Ryman on Dec. 15. More Opry appearances will be scheduled in 2019.
Opry NextStage will officially launch with a kickoff party and concert featuring performances by the inaugural class at Ole Red Nashville on Jan. 8, 2019.
