Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Wynonna & More to Perform During Special Grand Ole Opry “Total Eclipse” Show on Aug. 21

If you needed another reason to come to Nashville, the sun and moon are providing one next month—and so is the Grand Ole Opry.

A total solar eclipse will be occurring on Monday, August 21. And Nashville just happens to be the biggest city in the country in the direct path of the eclipse (beginning at 11:58 a.m. CT in Nashville with the total eclipse at 1:27 p.m.).

The Grand Ole Opry will be getting the party started a day before on August 20 with a special Sunday show dubbed Total Eclipse that features Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Wynonna and more.

The Opry eclipse celebration is set to continue the next day with a free Total Eclipse Plaza Party. Guests can expect live music on the Plaza stage, commemorative gifts, food and drinks and eclipse glasses. The Opry will feature a one-of-a-kind Total Eclipse soundtrack to accompany the approximately two minutes of eclipse totality.

Tickets go on sale on July 7 at 12 p.m. CT for the Opry show on August 20.
