Country music is set to return to the Grand Ole Opry House tomorrow night (Sept. 28), and fans will be able to watch a live stream of the historic show at opry.com, ustream.com/opry, GACTV.com, and participating artists' websites beginning at 8 p.m. Central. Among the stars scheduled for the history-making show are Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Jimmy Dickens, Martina McBride, Del McCoury, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, and Keith Urban. The Opry is returning to the Opry House for the first time since having been displaced by May's Nashville flood. The show will also air on GAC (Great American Country). In advance of and during the show, fans can follow their favorite artists via "Home Tweet Home," an all-day live Twitter feed from the Opry House. CMA Male Vocalist of the Year nominees Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley will be among the artists adding their own tweets to official Opry tweets providing updates from the newly-renovated backstage area at the Opry House. Fans can follow the Opry on Twitter (@opry) and can include the hashtag #opry in their personal tweets to interact with the Opry and artists, plus be entered to win prizes during the show. Paisley (@BradPaisley), Bentley (@DierksBentley), and others will share their personal observations through Twitter as they interact with the night's all-star cast. In addition to its Sept. 28 return to the Opry House, the Opry will celebrate its 85th Birthday throughout October, with shows featuring appearances by Adkins, Charlie Daniels Band, George Jones, The Judds, Dolly Parton, Charley Pride, Taylor Swift, and more.
