The legendary Grand Ole Opry will soon reopen to full capacity later this month, complete with performances from some country music's biggest superstars. Nashville announced that all COVID-19 capacity restrictions will be lifted Friday, May 14, including limits at entertainment venues and arenas, WKRN reports. The requirement to wear masks or facial coverings indoors will remain in effect until at least the end of June.
The iconic venue is marking the milestone with a May 14 performance by Opry members The Oak Ridge Boys and Lorrie Morgan. The next day, Morgan and Ryan Hurd will join Lady A as they take to the stage for their first show as members of the Grand Ole Opry.
As restrictions are lifted, Nashville is preparing to host its annual "Let Freedom Sing" Fourth of July event, with Brad Paisley set to headline the largest fireworks celebration in Music City history.
