Five years ago today, Dierks Bentley was inducted into The Grand Ole Opry! What a historical moment for him--and we all know how historical things make Dierks sing! In fact, he's performing the Opry tonight (October 1) to commemorate the occaision!
Not only that, but Dierks is hosting his very own Opry House backstage tour on Saturday morning, October 2. Tune in to the Opry's Facebook page at 10 a.m. for the video tour for fans around the world.
Want to know which of the newly-themed dressing rooms is his favorite? You’ll have to watch to find out! (Hint: the person who inspired this room would no doubt have flirted madly with him if she had caught him in her dressing room)
The special event is honoring "Spirt of Nashville Day," where the Opry will celebrate Nashville's spirit and resilience since the flood by inviting its hometown to get an up-close look at the newly renovated Opry House during a full day of free tours five months to the day following the flood.
There will be much to see, including a new artist entrance area, 18 uniquely-themed dressing rooms, and more, including the famed circle of wood center stage. The Nashville celebration will spill into the Opry Plaza with free music throughout the day, including a performance by hit-making new group The Band Perry.
Happy Opry Anniversary, Dierks! We hope to be celebrating in person at your 20th Opry anniverary!
