Nashville a little far for ya to sample a slice of the Grand Ole Opry? Now you can get a taste of the Opry right here in the state of New York!

I first reported in this back in ... and now i am happy to report the Opry City Stage opened Friday, according to the venue's Facebook page. Here is the great thing about this venue: the goal is to bring a piece of Nashville to New York City which is great because it is almost right in out backyard! The 4 story venue will of course feature live performances from Country's biggest stars, but it is also a bar and restaurant. Plus they will live stream performances from home base in Nashville! The venue will also feature a lot history and artifacts spanning the Opry's storied past.

Now that the venue is up and running, you are probably wondering what artists you can see there. LOCASH will things rocking with 2 performances New Year's Eve, and I am sure many will follow. I think you would agree: it's pretty to sweet to now have a slice of Nashville right here in the state of New York\!
