Grand Ole Opry members Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton will serve as co-hosts for “Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music,” honoring the iconic Nashville show and the country stars who have performed there.
The two-hour special is set to air Sunday, February 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Later that same week, Paisley will celebrate his 20th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member and Shelton is marking 10 years as a member.
Blake said the night he was made a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2010, “This is the reason that you move to Nashville, if you’re me. This is what I wanted from the beginning: to make a mark in country music and this is the ultimate one I think.”
For almost a century, the Grand Ole Opry has celebrated the past, present and future of country music, showcasing a mix of country legends and the contemporary chart-toppers who have followed in their footsteps. In that same spirit, the anniversary special brings together artists from across generations who share a passion and reverence for the Opry.
