Grand Ole Opry Webcast Streams 30,000 Viewers

A Grand Ole Opry show with performances by Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Jake Owen and Rodney Atkins is now available for a limited time on the official Opry MySpace page.
According to a news release, the webpage has streamed more than 30,000 viewers.
 “We are pleased that so many fans were a part of this overwhelmingly successful live stream event as we made Opry history,” Steve Buchanan, Grand Ole Opry Group president, said.
The MySpace Music page used Ustream to post the live video Sat., Nov. 14, and Buchanan said the Opry “has always utilized the latest in technology to deliver its unique brand of entertainment to country music listeners.”
“This success positions us to continue to widen the Opry’s distribution well into the future,” Buchanan said. “We are excited about all the possibilities before us as we break new ground in getting the Opry’s music to its fans.”
Performances at the Opry are held every weekend, and the Tuesday Night Opry will continue through Dec. 15. Shows will be staged at the historic Ryman Auditorium through Jan. 30, 210.
Country fans can get the latest Opry news via MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
