On Saturday, a live performance from Jean Shepard, Charley Pride, Craig Morgan, Ronnie Dunn and Rascal Flatts will air on GAC during Opry Live. This performance will also mark Ronnie Dunn’s debut as a solo artist. 
On Tuesday, Oct. 11, Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, LeAnn Rimes, Montgomery Gentry, Sara Evans, Scotty McCreery and Trace Adkins will perform for the event.
