Angel’s First Time Guest Announcing The Grand Ole Opry [PHOTOS]
Angel here! This weekend Chad and I traveled to Nashville where I was invited to guest announced a small part of the show for WBKR's Night At The Opry! It was an experience I will never forget. The evening started with a backstage tour of the Opry learning about the history, visiting different themed dressing rooms, and walking the path that many of my very favorite country music artists have walked over the years.
This is the artist entrance to the Opry. Artists can pull their personal vehicle right up to the drive and get out and walk in to perform.
This room belongs to the Grand Ole Opry Band. The band members are able to play with any music artist and can read any sheet of music.
One of my favorite parts of the tour was getting to see Minnie Pearl's dressing room. I remember watching her on Hee Haw as a little girl with my parents. Her dressing room was the most festive!
Probably the best part of the night for me was when I got to stand in the "Circle". The Circle is six feet of wood that's located center stage of the Grand Ole Opry. It was originally in the Ryman until 1974. Stars like Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Reba McIntire, and so many more. It is a major part of country music history!
Chad and I also got to meet T. Bubba Bechtol, a comedian from Pensacola, Florida who has performed at the Grand Ole Opry more than 300 times!
If you have never been to the Opry it is something that should go on your bucket list. The atmosphere is amazing, the people are great, and the performers are incredible! I can't wait to go back again.
