LAUREN LAFFER Sounds Like Nashville • NOVEMBER 11, 2015
The Grand Ole Opry will soon make its debut on the silver screen with American Saturday Night: Live from the Grand Ole Opry. As the release date approaches, the film’s trailer has finally been released. Check it out below.
“We are excited about the opportunity to take the Opry and country music into movie theaters across the country,” Steve Buchanan, Opry Entertainment President, said when the film was announced. “This partnership allows us to present the Opry to fans through a previously unutilized medium and is another way for the Opry to expand its reputation as a vehicle of discovery for America’s music.”
“The main goal of my career was to be an Opry member,” said Paisley. “Once you get that, it becomes so much more than that. It becomes family and friendships and part of your life, really. These people out here from (Opry general manager) Pete (Fisher) to artists like Bill Anderson and Jeannie Seely and the people I associate with these backstage experiences, there’s so many great memories now.”
American Saturday Night: Live from the Grand Ole Opry will be distributed to Carmike Cinemas across the country in January.
