Sixty-five miles from the heart of country music in Nashville, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival will see country take over on Sunday, June 10. The Grand Ole Opry is staging its first-ever show at the Manchester, Tennessee fest featuring performances from Brothers Osborne, LANCO, Old Crow Medicine Show and more.

Grand Ole Opry at Bonnaroo will also highlight country veterans Bobby BareDel McCoury Band and Riders In The Sky, as well as newcomers Lucie Silvas and Nikki Lane. More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

"Celebrating the rich cultural legacy of Tennessee and the region has been an important part of the Bonnaroo experience from the beginning," Ashley Capps, president of AC Entertainment (co-producers of Bonnaroo) says in a statement. "It's hard to imagine anything more iconic and exciting in that regard than the Grand Ole Opry...it's like the ultimate...a profoundly historic moment for all of us at Bonnaroo and something we'll be talking about -- and building upon -- for years to come."

While the Grand Ole Opry hosts up to six performances a week at the iconic Nashville location, the venue has rarely taken its showcase-style events outside of Music City in its 92-year history -- making the Grand Ole Opry at Bonnaroo event particularly special. "I think the diverse, multi-generational shows that we create on a regular basis will really resonate with the Bonnaroo music aficionados," Sally Williams, senior vice president of programming and artist relations for Opry Entertainment Group, adds.

Those who can't make it to Manchester on June 10 can listen to Grand Ole Opry at Bonnaroo by tuning in on opry.com and wsmonline.com, Opry and WSM mobile apps, and the shows' flagship home, 650 AM-WSM.
