Gill will host a television special next month with an unlikely combination of subject and venue: "The Grand Ole Opry at Carnegie Hall."
Country crooner Vince Gill is said to host "The Grand Ole Opry at Carnegie Hall", which is a television special with an unlikely combination of subject and venue.
Set to be held March 12 on the Great American Country cable network, the two-hour show will feature performances by Gill, Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss, Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Trace Adkins and many others.
The show also will capture a Grand Ole Opry show, presented at New York's Carnegie Hall in November, which is part of the Opry's 80th anniversary celebration last year, thus becoming the first time the radio program had visited the hall in 44 years.
