RCA Nashville’s Niko Moon has been selected as the Opry NextStage featured artist for September.
Developed by Opry Entertainment Group and the Grand Ole Opry, Opry NextStage invests in the discovery and development of new artists and highlights one up-and-coming artist per month. Moon joins the Class of 2021 artists Hailey Whitters, Parker McCollum and Lainey Wilson.
“What an honor to be the new Opry NextStage Artist! To be brought one step closer into the Opry family and have my music showcased by a place that I hold so dear is nothing short of mind blowing,” said Moon. “When I play the Opry, I know I’m standing on the shoulders of giants and all the legendary country artists who’ve come before me that have stood in that circle. There’s no other place like it.”
After his Labor Day weekend performance at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, Sept. 4, over the Labor Day holiday weekend, Moon also recently released his debut album Good Time. He is currently on the road with Lady A for the trio’s “What A Song Can Do” Tour.
Opportunities for Opry NextStage artists include feature performances on the Grand Ole Opry and Circle’s Opry Live broadcast and livestream; a performance at a special Opry NextStage concert in 2021; content produced by Opry Entertainment’s award-winning content team that utilizes all Opry Entertainment venues including Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and Ole Red locations nationwide; exclusive content to be distributed via Circle broadcast, streaming, and video-on demand channels; customized marketing and promotion activations utilizing Opry web and social assets; and other opportunities such as outdoor advertising, 650 WSM-AM radio specials, and more.
