The Grand Ole Opry House, closed for nearly five months of repairs after suffering flood damage in early May, will celebrate tonight’s reopening with a star-studded concert. Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Martina McBride, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Josh Turner, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels Band, Montgomery Gentry and Jason Aldean are among those scheduled to perform as part of Country Comes Home: An Opry Celebration, which will stream live at 9 p.m. ET on Opry.com and GACTV.com.
