The Dream Of the 90s is Alive at The Opry

And don't miss our favorite '90s country songs!

Break out your choker necklaces and glitter sequined fringe. The Grand Ole Opry announced the “Opry Loves The ‘90s” experience, which kicks off on May 16 and runs through the end of 2022.

The celebration includes a new interactive tour exhibit, special in-show Opry programming, ‘90s-themed Opry Plaza Parties, and surprise artist collaborations honoring one of the most influential decades in country music.

Featured displays include interactive experiences, including photo opportunities and a digital gaming console for fans who want to try their hand at answering ‘90s country music trivia and iconic stage wear and artifacts representing career milestone moments and performances from Opry members such as Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Terri Clark, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Lorrie Morgan, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Trisha Yearwood and more.

“For nearly a century, the Opry has been dedicated to honoring country music’s rich history and dynamic presence. With ‘Opry Loves The ‘90s,’ we’re excited to celebrate a formative decade that made an impact on country music that will be felt forever thanks to the influence of artists known now by just one name: Garth, Trisha, Vince, Reba and Shania, among many more. For me, the country music of the ‘90s made me want to move to Nashville and be a part of what happens in this great music community,” explains Dan Rogers, Grand Ole Opry Vice President/Executive Producer.

“Country music fans of all ages seem to have their own ‘90s country stories, and just as the Opry did during that decade, we aim to help them celebrate those stories, create new ones and experience some of the songs that made many of us huge fans 30 years ago,” he adds.

The “Opry Loves the ’90s” experience runs through December 31. The ’90s Country Plaza Parties will begin Memorial Day Weekend. The parties will be free and open to the public, and they will occur each Friday and Saturday through Labor Day Weekend.
