Opry in the News: Celebrating 90s Country With Special Shows, Tour Exhibits

An “Opry Loves The ‘90s” new interactive tour exhibition opens May 16 as part of the Grand Ole Opry’s celebration of ‘90s Country Music. Now through December, the “Opry Loves The 90s” experience will include the new exhibit as part of the backstage tour package and special in-show Opry programming, ‘90s-themed Opry Plaza Parties, and surprise artist collaborations honoring one of the most celebrated decades in country music.

The “Opry Loves The ‘90s” tour exhibit celebrates the artists, songs, and songwriters that defined the music in the 1990s. Featured displays include iconic stage wear and artifacts representing career milestone moments and performances from Opry members Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Terri Clark, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Trisha Yearwood, and more. The exhibit also includes interactive experiences including photo opportunities and a digital gaming console for fans who want to try their hand at answering ‘90s country music trivia and identify some of the most famous musical “riffs” of iconic ‘90s country songs.

The Opry, which showcases the past, present and future of country music in every show, will also include special nods to ‘90s country during each Opry show, including featured performances from some of the artists who rose to fame in the ‘90s, artists who were influenced by the music from the ‘90s and video highlights from the Opry archives.

Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Opry will host free and open to the public ‘90s Country Plaza Parties that will run each Friday and Saturday through Labor Day weekend and again on Fridays and Saturdays in October to celebrate the 97th Opry anniversary.
