The Grand Ole Opry is teaming up with some of the most talented musicians in the ‘biz to honor the legendary Ray Charles.
Hosted by Darius Rucker, “An Opry Salute to Ray Charles” will feature unique collaborations and special performances of Charles’ music, performed by Boyz II Men, Cam, Brett Eldredge, Leela James, Lukas Nelson, Allen Stone, Travis Tritt, Chris Young and more.
“When you think of musical legends, you think of Ray Charles,” says Rucker. “To host this great event celebrating his legacy at the Opry makes it even more special. Being asked to join the Opry six years ago was one of the greatest highlights of my career and it’s an honor any time I get to step onto that stage, especially for a night like this.”
“An Opry Salute to Ray Charles” will be filmed for a PBS television special to air in November 2018. The special will also feature behind the scenes footage, a visit to the Ray Charles Library and iconic footage courtesy of the Ray Charles Foundation.
Tickets for “An Opry Salute to Ray Charles” will go on sale tomorrow, Thursday September 20 at 10:00 am at (615) 871-OPRY and opry.com.
