NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY® Award-winning FairTrade Services recording artist Audio Adrenaline marked another career milestone this week with their debut on the iconic American institution, The Grand Ole Opry. The band performed acoustic renditions of selections from their #1-selling latest recording Sound of the Saints, along with one of their signature classics, “Ocean Floor.”
Audio Adrenaline shared the historic Opry stage with four-time CMA Vocal Group of the Year Diamond Rio; Platinum-selling country neotraditionalist Aaron Tippin; Grand Ole Opry member Lorrie Morgan; GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Will Hoge; and Kelsea Ballerini, whose recent chart-topper “Love Me Like You Mean It” made her the 11th female artist in country music history to achieve #1 status with her debut country single.
The Grand Ole Opry, an American icon and Nashville’s number-one attraction, has been called the “home of American music” and “country’s most famous stage.” Beginning as a radio broadcast in 1925, the Opry today honors country music’s rich history and dynamic present, showcasing a mix of country legends and the contemporary chart-toppers who have followed in their footsteps. Hundreds of thousands attend live Opry performances each year, while millions more tune in to Opry broadcasts via a mobile app, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Nashville’s 650 AM WSM, and on opry.com and wsmonline.com.
