Grand Ole Opry to Celebrate 90s Country in 2022

You know it to be true. The 90s era in country music is quite hot at the moment, and everyone is looking to take advantage of the renewed interest in this classic era of country. Now that includes the Grand Ole Opry. Under the leadership of Executive Producer Dan Rogers, the Opry continues to make savvy moves that have put the storied country music institution on some of the most sure footing in decades, and revitalized the Opry’s standing in popular country culture. Answering the surging interest in 90s country is the latest.

“For me, the country music of the ‘90s made me want to move to Nashville and be a part of what happens in this great music community,” says Dan Rogers. “Country music fans of all ages seem to have their own ‘90s country stories, and just as the Opry did during that decade, we aim to help them celebrate those stories, create new ones and experience some of the songs that made many of us huge fans 30 years ago.”

So what will “Opry Loves The 90s” entail? It starts with a new tour exhibit that will celebrate the artists, songs, and songwriters that defined country music in the 1990, including stage clothing, artifacts, and photos from the era symbolizing Opry moments from the 90s by the likes of Grand Ole Opry members Clint Black, Terri Clark, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, and Trisha Yearwood.

The exhibit will also have interactive digital games that will include 90s country trivia, including trying to identify songs based off of iconic musical riffs from the era. Also, running through Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2022, “Opry Loves The 90s” will be the theme of the Opry’s free plaza parties at the Opry House each Friday and Saturday, and in October during the Opry’s 97th anniversary.

And of course during the period, there will be extra emphasis on 90s country stars during the Grand Ole Opry presentations themselves. It all officially kicks off on Monday, May 16th, with the “Opry Loves The 90s” exhibit officially running until the end of 2022.
