Now this sounds like a great country music television special and album...
In conjunction with the album release of "How Great Thou Art: Gospel Favorites From The Grand Ole Opry," GAC will air a special television special on February 9, 2008. Scheduled to appear include Carrie Underwood, Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Sara Evans, Loretta Lynn and Ronnie Milsap. Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs and The Whites will be apart of the airing in pre-taped performances.
The special will be taped at the Grand Ole Opry House on January 20 and tickets are on sale now for $15. The proceeds go to the Opry Trust Fund. If you buy tickets for Opry shows in January or February, you can pickup this ticket for $5. Not bad deal at all.
