For 95 years, the Grand Ole Opry has shared live country music across the airwaves of American radio.  Celebrating its 20th year, The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is known for its curation of an eclectic musical lineup. On September 2nd, 2021, these two iconic institutions will join forces in Manchester, Tennessee, marking the Grand Ole Opry’s third show from Bonnaroo.

As with all Grand Ole Opry shows, the Bonnaroo crowd can expect outstanding talent including both household names and artists on the rise.  Topping the bill for this year’s show is Australian-born, Chet Atkins-inspired protégé, and world-class guitarist, Tommy Emmanuel. He is joined by Grammy-nominated, Blues Music Award-winner, and founding Carolina Chocolate Drops member, Dom Flemons.  Fans of top-40 country will also recognize Opry member Chris Janson’s name from his hit, “Buy Me A Boat,” among many from his award-winning career.

The 2021 Bonnaroo Grand Ole Opry lineup also welcomes Grammy-nominated alt/rock, roots music phenom Amythyst Kiah; rock and soul singer/songwriter Maggie Rose; solo artist/musician and lead guitarist for Foo Fighters, Chris Shiflett; The Travelin’ McCourys; the Opry Square Dancers; and Country Music Disc Jockey Hall of Fame member and Opry announcer, Bill Cody.
