The Grand Ole Opry and Nashville’s ongoing popular concert series Whiskey Jam have partnered for the Opry Plaza summer concert series set to kick off this Friday, May 26 at 5 p.m. at the Opry House. The free ‘Opry Plaza Summer Concert Series Powered by Whiskey Jam’ will showcase artists curated by Whiskey Jam every Friday and Saturday through Labor Day weekend, including a special Tuesday night show on Jun 6 featuring Julia Cole during CMA Fest week.

The Opry and Whiskey Jam both have a long-standing history of supporting artists at varying stages of their career and attracting performers of all genres and backgrounds. For 10 years, Whiskey Jam has hosted artists, including Jelly Roll, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Lainey Wilson and Opry members Lady A, Luke Combs and Carly Pearce. 

"Saying this is a dream come true would be a HUGE understatement," says Whiskey Jam Co-founder Ward Guenther. “Whiskey Jam is honored to be collaborating with The Opry, quite simply the biggest name in Nashville live music history. They were so gracious to consider us, and we can't wait to share some of our favorite rising artists with the Opry's loyal fan base."
