Natalie Stovall and the Drive are set to make their Grand Ole Opry debut on Tuesday, May 6th. The dream come true for the band has the rare distinction of making a debut both as a solo artist and a band as Natalie graced the stage for the first time in the Spring of 1995 at the age of 12. The band’s front woman, Columbia, Tennessee native Natalie Stovall, has another tie to the Opry name as she spent much of her childhood honing her talent performing as part of the Opryland Kid’s Club at the Opryland theme park. To be part of the band’s momentous appearance on the historic stage, please visit OPRY.COM or call 800-SEE-OPRY for tickets and information.
“Singing on the Opry for the first time is a surreal experience, and getting to do it twice in one lifetime is unbelievable,” says Stovall. “We can’t wait to get out on that stage!”
