    Some of country music's favorite artists will be part of the excitement as the Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® reaches the culmination of its months-long 85th birthday celebration with a two-day Birthday Bash held on October 8 and 9. How grand is that - to celebrate your birthday for several months? But hey, the Grand Ole Opry is an American cultural icon, so let the celebration end on a huge, high note.

    The fete will feature Opry performances by award-winners Trace Adkins, Crystal Gayle, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift and many more. The bash lands just ten days after the world-famous Opry's planned September 28 return to the Grand Ole Opry House after having been displaced by flooding last spring. Not even debilitating floods can stop the Grand Ole Opry from rising and returning to its rightful home.

    "There's so much to celebrate this year, in particular," Parton said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to seeing all the good country music fans that weekend, and I just hope good lookin' guys like Trace Adkins are as excited to come see me when I hit 85 as they are to celebrate with the Opry this year! Of course we don't have to worry about my 85th for a long, long time!" Dolly Parton is seriously the cutest country star in the world. Love her.

    Happy birthday, Opry!

    Will you be attending the celebration of the Grand Ole Opry's birthday?
