The Grand Ole Opry held a special performance tonight as the kick-off night of the Country Radio Seminar (CRS), which will be held through Feb. 10 at Omni Nashville.
The star-studded lineup included Trace Adkins, Ashley Campbell, Chris Carmack, Easton Corbin, Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, Maddie & Tae, Martina McBride and David Nail and was available to all CRS registrants. The Grand Ole Opry at CRS 2016 is sponsored by Disabled American Veterans.
Since 2012, Country music’s most famous show has made its mark on CRS and brought star-studded shows to standing room only crowds. With the Opry’s signature barn backdrop and famous microphone stands on stage, the Omni Hotel’s Broadway Ballroom was transformed to give audience members a real taste of the Opry and the Grand Ole Opry House in the middle of CRS.
