Blanco Brown recently made his Grand Ole Opry debut performance on Tuesday night (Nov. 19), performing his smash hit “The Git Up.” He became the first artist to perform on the Grand Ole Opry stage accompanied by a DJ. He performed tracks including “Temporary Insanity,” “TN Whiskey” and “The Git Up,” from his album Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs (BBR Music Group).

After the performance, he met with Grand Ole Opry member Charley Pride and asked Pride to sign his jacket. He also performed at an Opry Debut After Party at Ole Red and signed albums for fans.

“What an incredible moment, I can’t believe it was the first time since the Opry started in 1925 that an artist has performed using 808’s,” said Brown. “I make music to spread joy and seeing the Ryman Auditorium filled with people smiling and dancing with me was something I’ll never forget. I want to thank the Grand Ole Opry for opening their hearts to me and allowing me to share my purpose with their audience.”
