After announcing its partnership with the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix, the Grand Ole Opry has added more performers to the special Opry show set to take place in downtown Nashville on Sunday, August 8.
Justin Moore, Riley Green, Danielle Bradbery, and Callista Clark will now join Opry member Alan Jackson to round out the lineup. The Opry show will close out the three day festival.
“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.”
The three-day international festival running from Aug. 6-8, 2021 will be staged on a temporary 2.17-mile grand prix circuit in Nashville and around the Nissan Stadium campus. The course will cross the Cumberland River via the Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge, making the Music City Grand Prix the only current event in motorsports to cross over a major body of water.
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.
“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,” shares Scott Bailey, president of Opry Entertainment Group. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to connect artists and fans in such a unique setting.”
