The Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® will honor one of country music's most renowned artists, Emmylou Harris, on her 20th anniversary as an Opry member on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012 at the historic Ryman Auditorium. The Country Music Hall of Fame member was inducted into the Opry on Jan. 25, 1992. Her 20-year milestone will be celebrated with performances by the honoree, fellow 20-year Opry veteran Vince Gill; Rodney Crowell, with whom Harris is currently working on a duets album; Grammy®-winner Shawn Colvin, making her Opry debut that evening; and more.
"Emmylou is treasured not just by all of us at the Grand Ole Opry, but also by fans around the world," said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. She's shared so many great musical moments with us over the past 20 years, singing with and introducing us to some of her favorite musical collaborators. We're excited to celebrate her Opry anniversary at the Ryman, a stage on which she's displayed such incredible artistry through the years."
