Opry NextStage alum Lainey Wilson will host and perform at the third annual “Opry NextStage Live” show at the Grand Ole Opry House on Dec. 6.
The Opry-style event will showcase some of country music’s top rising artists who are part of the Opry NextStage program, with performances from NextStage Class of 2023 members Ashley Cooke, Chapel Hart, Corey Kent, Ernest, Jackson Dean and Kameron Marlowe. Tickets will be available through an exclusive pre-sale on Oct. 19, with general public on-sale beginning Oct. 20 at 10 a.m. CT at opry.com.
“Opry NextStage holds a special place in my heart because it’s all about giving talented, emerging artists the spotlight they deserve,” says Wilson. “I know how it feels to chase a dream in this town, and the Opry has always championed up-and-coming artists like me. I am honored to have been a part of the NextStage community, and I can’t wait to share the stage with these awesome artists.”
