Watch the New Opry Live Theme Song Written and Recorded by Brad Paisley
Opry member Brad Paisley has written and recorded a new theme song for OPRY LIVE on Great American Country television network. The tune showcases Paisley's instrumental prowess as well as his award-winning songwriting ability and will debut this Saturday along with a new OPRY LIVE graphics package. OPRY LIVE airs on GAC at 8:00 p.m. ET.
Paisley named the theme "From Uncle Jimmy to Justin," referencing Uncle Jimmy Thompson, who played fiddle on the 1925 inaugural broadcast of what would become the Grand Ole Opry, and Paisley's fiddle player Justin Williamson.
"The Drama Kings and I went into the studio last week with the daunting task of coming up with music that encompasses the many generations and styles that are the Grand Ole Opry," says Paisley. "I like what we came up with and I hope the fans out there do, too. I'm very proud to be a part of this and, yes, the Drama Kings is our newly adopted band name."
The theme song makes its debut this Saturday night as the Opry welcomes its newest member, platinum-selling Josh Turner. Also appearing on OPRY LIVE this weekend are Opry superstar Vince Gill, Grammy®-winners the Del McCoury Band, and newcomer Rissi Palmer.
