Opry Entertainment Launches Video Series “The Write Stuff”

Opry Entertainment Group is set to launch their newest video series “The Write Stuff,” offering insight into the biggest hits for country’s top stars, as well as exclusive Opry performances. In the coming weeks, episodes of “The Write Stuff” will take deep dives into a number of songs including Little Big Town’s groundbreaking hit “Girl Crush.”

“We just didn’t think it was a song someone would cut,” recalls “Girl Crush” co-writer Lori McKenna, who penned the song with her “Love Junkies” co-horts Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose. “It just seemed like such a personal thing. We didn’t even know if it made sense. It made sense to us because we were all there when it happened but we didn’t know if someone else coming in for the first time would get it right away.”

Other episodes will highlight songs from Lee Brice, Hunter Hayes and RaeLynn.

“We wrote ‘Boy’ because I was pregnant,” recalls songwriter Nicolle Galyon of Brice’s 2017 hit. “I was 39 weeks pregnant and it was my last day to write. This song was really more of a stream of consciousness. We literally wrote it from first line to last line.”

“From the Grand Ole Opry stage to our backstage dressing rooms, we have been fortunate to hear firsthand so many moving stories behind these songs,” shares Sally Williams, SVP of Programming & Artist Relations for Opry Entertainment and General Manager of the Grand Ole Opry. “It is with those moments in mind that ‘The Write Stuff’ was created as part of our continued efforts to preserve the heritage and origins of these great contributions to American music.”
