The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix has announced its partnership with the Grand Ole Opry to present a special performance in downtown Nashville on Sunday, August 8 to conclude the weekend of racing.
This stage will feature a full lineup of talent to be announced at a later date, culminating with country icon, and longtime racing enthusiast Alan Jackson.
“When we first began to conceptualize the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix we knew music had to be just as big a part of this event as the racing itself, and there is no better partner for this than the Grand Ole Opry – the show that made country music famous,” says Matt Crews, CEO of Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. “We are looking forward to closing out what is sure to be an unforgettable weekend in the best way possible with the Grand Ole Opry.”
Since its inception, the Opry has rarely taken its show outside of its home venue, only visiting prestigious locales such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as headlining shows at Bonnaroo.
“The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix has brought together a course like no other, an artist like no other and a show like no other to create an experience that could only take place here in Nashville,” said Scott Bailey, President of Opry Entertainment Group. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to connect artists and fans in such a unique setting.”
The three-day festival taking place August 6-8 will be staged on a temporary 2.17-mile grand prix circuit in Nashville and around the Nissan Stadium campus. In addition to a weekend of racing, attendees can look forward to live music performances by top artists, best-in-class food experiences and entertainment that centers on speed.
