The Grand Ole Opry is celebrating its 95th anniversary with a month of events, giveaways, and performances.
The Grand Ole Opry this week announced plans for its month-long 95th-anniversary celebration, with audiences, limited to 500 people, permitted at some performances beginning Saturday, October 3.
Dierks Bentley, Terri Clark, Vince Gill, and Lorrie Morgan — all Opry members — are set to play tomorrow for the 4,944th consecutive Saturday night broadcast. Bentley was inducted on October 1, 2005, so the event will mark his 15th Opry anniversary.

October 10: “Opry Firsts”: Celebrating Opry debuts and other firsts on the Opry stage. Carly Pearce, Jeannie Seely, Josh Turner, and more

October 24: “Opry Goes Pink”: The Opry’s 12th Annual Show Marking the Fight Against Breast Cancer | Lauren Alaina, Little Big Town, Victoria Shaw, and more
