Grand Ole Opry — live at Lipscomb

In the wake of devastating flooding in Nashville, Tenn., country music’s most famous stage — the Grand Ole Opry — was left without a venue.
Not to worry.
Lipscomb University helped ensure that the show would go on.
Two Grand Ole Opry performances in June were moved to Lipscomb’s Allen Arena.
In the video above, Lady Antebellum — one of country’s hottest groups — sings on the temporary Opry stage at Lipscomb.

  • Feedback
    Had Lipscomb not offered their arena, the long-running radio show might have had to be off the air for a week or two. I am glad that David Lipscomb University offered their facility to the Grand Ole Opry and that their offer was accepted.
