The Opry and Ryman official Twitter accounts last night had left country music fans in suspense when they said they had an announcement to make at 10 am EST this morning for a concert announcement. The Band Perry will headline a show at the historic Ryman Auditorium on February 20th, 2012 at 7 pm. Tickets are on sale on August 26th and start as low as $25.

The Band Perry have performed at the Opry before as part of multi-artist nights, but this will be their first headlining show at the Ryman.

“We are so excited to headline the Ryman, which holds a very special place in the heart of everyone in country music. It truly is an amazing experience to step on that stage – we can’t wait to spend a whole evening there, sharing our stories and becoming a part of its history,” said Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry.

The Band Perry at the Ryman would be a pretty neat Valentine’s Day gift, wouldn’t it? For more information on the concert, see the official event page HERE.

According to Opry.com, The Oak Ridge Boys were invited to join the Grand Ole Opry tonight by none other than Mr. Jimmy Dickens himself! The Oak Ridge Boys – William Lee Golden, Joe Bonsall, Richard Sterban, and Duane Allen, will be inducted on Saturday, August 6th.

The ¬†group was surprised on stage by Jimmy Dickens dressed as William Lee Golden, decked out in a long beard and sunglasses. “All my life I’ve wanted to be a little bitty Oak Ridge Boy,” Jimmy Dickens announced as he took the stage in costume. “On August 6th, I will become the newest member of the Oak Ridge Boys, and at that time, you will become the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry!”

Joe Bonsall spooke for the group with “Jimmy, that’s the funniest thing we’ve ever seen, first of all. This is a brotherhood and sisterhood unlike any other. We have been friends of the Opry for a long time… We will get on our bus later and let this process, and I guess we have until August 6th to let it sink in.”

Congratulations to the Oak Ridge Boys!
