    Emmylou Harris to Celebrate 20th Anniversary as Grand Ole Opry Member
    Jack Spencer

    Emmylou Harris will be honored by the Grand Ole Opry on the occasion of her 20th anniversary as an Opry member on Saturday, January 21, 2012, at the historic Ryman Auditorium. The Country Music Hall of Fame member was inducted into the Opry on January 25, 1992. Her 20-year milestone will be celebrated with performances by the honoree, fellow 20-year Opry veteran Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, 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.”

    Harris performs in the Opry at the Ryman this coming Saturday with The Civil Wars, The Grascals, Steve Wariner, Ella Mae Bowen, Keb 'Mo, and others. Earlier in the day, she hosts her second-annual Miracle on Music Row benefit concert and event to support Bonaparte's Retreat, the dog rescue and adoption center she established. The event takes place at O.liv Body Bar and begins at 10:30 AM. Also performing are The Civil Wars, Mike Farris, and frequent Harris collaborator Buddy Miller.

    Harris's latest Nonesuch album, Hard Bargain, has been nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. Hard Bargain was just named one of the Top 100 Albums of the Year by NPR music listeners. To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store, where all CDs, DVDs, and LPs are now 34% off for the store's fourth anniversary. Orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.
