Texas artist Bart Crow has been given the highest form of flattery when it comes to country music -- the invite to perform on stage of the prestigious Grand Ole Opry on August 21, in the midst of its nine-month 90th Anniversary celebration.
"Honestly, I believe I am still in shock being invited to play the Grand Ole Opry,” says Crow. “It is the shrine of country music and every song I was raised on, from both of my grandfathers to my own Dad. To think that I will be standing on the very hallowed circle of wood that so many legends and heroes who blurred the boundaries of music performed, it is quite overwhelming. It is a great honor and dream I never imagined possible. And this year is the Opry's 90th anniversary ... take a moment to let that sink in."
Crow’s current single “Life Comes At You Fast,” sums up the opportunity as it tells of life, love and holding on for the ride. Crow will be holding on tight as he steps in to the famed “Circle” of where many of his heroes like John Conlee and George Jones have stood.
Crow will release his next album, The Parade, this Fall, having him reuniting with producer Justin Pollard.
