Lisa Marie Presley to Make Grand Ole Opry Debut Tonight!
Tonight is an exciting night at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville! Lisa Marie Presley is set to follow in the footsteps of her father, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, by performing on stage at the show that made country music famous. Lisa Marie will be playing tracks from her third album, Storm & Grace, which is an Americana record produced by T. Bone Burnett.
Presley isn’t the first non-country artist to take the Grand Ole Opry stage. From time to time, the Opry welcomes non-country performers, including several U.S. Presidents, rock stars, comedians, Academy Award and Emmy winners and other famous American figures. Just last month, for instance, lpop legend Barry Gibb made his own Opry debut.
The performance by the King’s daughter is doubly historical due to the fact that her father played the Grand Ole Opry only once, back on October 2, 1954. On stage that night, Elvis performed "Blue Moon of Kentucky" . . . a performance that remains one of the most important and memorable performances in Opry history.
And speaking of history . . . it will be made again tonight when the daughter of 'The King" stands in the same circle her father did nearly 60 years ago. Lisa Marie Presley is set to follow in Elvis' footsteps and give Nashville another night to remember!
