The Grand Ole Opry honored members of the U.S. Military Saturday night during its annual “Salute The Troops” show featuring Lauren Alaina plus Opry members Luke Combs and Chris Young, among others in front of a sold-out crowd. The performances aired as part of Opry Live on the Circle Network.
Lauren was joined by her father, a veteran of the U.S. Army, and brother for the classic “When You Say Nothing At All,” while the hit-maker also added “Road Less Traveled” and her current single, “Getting Over Him.”
“Oh BROTHER Yesterday was my brother’s birthday, and I asked him and my daddy to perform with me at the @opry . God has blessed me with more than I can comprehend, but one of the biggest blessings he gave me was being my brother’s little sissy and my daddy’s little girl,” she wrote on her socials.
On Friday, the Opry will release a limited-edition vinyl LP titled Unbroken | Empty Room, Full Circle. Available exclusively on Opry.com and at the Opry’s Nashville-based retail outlets, the LP includes memorable performances by Luke Combs, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, and more recorded live from the Opry stage in front of an empty house during the 29 weeks that the Saturday night Opry shows continued uninterrupted during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among those scheduled for upcoming spring and summer Opry performances are Trace Adkins, Kelsea Ballerini, Steven Curtis Chapman, Lindsay Ell, The Isaacs, Chris Janson, Gary LeVox, MercyMe, Craig Morgan, Carly Pearce, Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, Darius Rucker, Tenille Townes, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, Rhonda Vincent, Clay Walker, Gene Watson, and more.
