The Grand Ole Opry posted to their socials this morning expressing their stance on racism.
“Racism is real. It is unacceptable. And it has no place at The Grand Ole Opry. Visit the link in our bio to read our parent company’s full statement regarding our commitment to addressing racism and discrimination in our communities, and creating a more inclusive environment in our workplace and on our stages.”
Kelsea Ballerini was one of the first artists to praise the Opry, where she is a member. She shared the Opry’s post on her Instagram stories saying, “And my love and respect for the Grand Ole Opry grows even deeper.”
Lindsay Ell wrote in her Instagram stories, simply, ‘thank you.’
Other artists that put hearts on the post were Mickey Guyton and 1990’s hits makers Mark Wills and Terri Clark.
