Earlier last month, The Grand Ole Opry announced the Opry NextStage Lineup for 2023, spotlighting country music’s rising talent and investing in the discovery of new artists.
To celebrate the new faces in country music, The Grand Ole Opry has officially announced that Jelly Roll will be the host for “Opry NextStage Live” concert at Lava Cantina in Colony, Texas on May 10th, showcasing the talent of the Class of 2023. . The event will take place one day before the highly anticipated ACM Awards.
The Opry NextStage Class of 2023 features eight acts: Ashley Cooke, Jackson Dean, ERNEST, Chapel Hart, Corey Kent, Kameron Marlowe, Megan Moroney and Ian Munsick.
Jelly Roll has quickly dominated the country music world with his unconventional singing/songwriting abilities, recently winning three CMT Awards. He has become one of the most high demand new-comers in the industry— and now he will do the honor of welcoming the Opry NextStage Class of 2023.
“When the Opry asked me to make my debut, it was a dream come true,” said Jelly Roll. “The Opry is more than just a stage – it’s a community that supports up-and-coming artists. They understand the importance of nurturing new talent and giving them a platform to shine. I’ve seen firsthand how the Opry has helped grow the careers of so many artists, and it’s an honor to be a part of that tradition.” Jelly Roll made his Grand Ole Opry debut in November of 2021.
A limited number of general admission tickets are still available. A portion of proceeds will benefit ACM Lifting Lives. “Opry NextStage Live” will also stream live on Circle Network’s Facebook and YouTube pages on Wednesday, May 10 at 2:30pm CT.
