Grand Ole Opry celebrates 88th birthday with weekend of events

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

There's a very special celebration taking place at the Grand Ole Opry this weekend as the iconic Nashville country music program celebrates its 88th anniversary.

The Opry began as a radio show in October 1925 on WSM radio and two years later was branded with the name everyone knows it as today.

Festivities at the Opry House begin Friday and feature three weekend Opry shows - including a concert by Opry member Steve Wariner - plus an Opry birthday cake and backstage tours.

The Opry Plaza will also play host to games, food and free music each day.
