One of the things we love about country music is its inclusion. Music fans are music fans and country music fans are happy to share their stage with many other formats, both figuratively and in this case literally.
The Grand Ole Opry is a country music institution. From its roots at the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville to it’s current location at the official “Grand Ole Opry,” the circle (a circle of floorboards from it’s original home at the Ryman) has hosted Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ray Charles, Janis Joplin, even Lady Gaga and Snoop Dogg.
Whelp – this week it was Vince Neil’s turn. The Motely Crue lead singer got in touch with his country roots when he made his Grand Ole Opry debut.
Neil took to the stage of the iconic venue and treated the crowd to the rock band’s classic ballad “Home Sweet Home.” (see below)
The Opry posted on Instagram:
We continued our long-standing tradition of having guest appearances on the Opry stage during the Tuesday Night Opry. @thevinceneil made his Grand Ole Opry debut, and the audience concluded his performance with a standing ovation! 👏”
In the video, Vince shared that getting to perform at the venue gave him “the shakes.”
