Grand Ole Opry to re-open next month; 9:30 Club launches label; Mary J. Blige and Sheryl Crow announce D.C. dates
By David Malitz
- The Grand Ole Opry will return to its permanent home with an all-star concert on Sept. 28 after being displaced due to flooding earlier this year in Nashville. Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and Charlie Daniels Band are among those who will help welcome the iconic country spot back home.
- After conquering the live music and cupcake sectors, iconic local venue 9:30 Club has announced plans to start its own record label, 9:30 Records. The first release will be an EP by local alt-country singer-songwriter Justin Jones.
- Mary J. Blige and Sheryl Crow have both announced D.C. dates on their fall tours. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul will perform at Jiffy Lube Live on Oct. 7 (tickets go on sale Monday), while, uh, I guess Sheryl Crow doesn't have a nickname. She'll be at The Music Center at Strathmore on Sept. 29. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
