Scotty McCreery has signed on to perform at the upcoming Country Radio Seminar, to be held on Feb. 27 inside the Performance Hall at the Nashville Convention Center. He joins Dustin Lynch and Grand Ole Opry members Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Vince Gill as part of the all-star lineup. This special performance of Country music's institution will kick-off the two-hour event, which follows the annual CRS Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception, for the first time in the seminar's history.
“Every week, the Grand Ole Opry showcases an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind mix of country music’s new stars, superstars, and legends for country music fans from around the world," Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher said, in a statement, as reported by Music Row. "We’re excited to deliver a special show featuring some of radio’s biggest current hit-makers who are also some of the most popular artists who visit our stage for all our friends in country radio when CRS returns to town next month."
CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne boasts:
“This marks the first time in the history of the seminar, which is over 40 years, that we welcome the Grand Ole Opry to our stage. It has been a long time coming, but will be well worth the wait. My thanks to Pete Fisher and the Opry staff for allowing me to present this show on the opening night of CRS 2013, as both events are such a great fit for each other.”
More performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
