The Walters Family Band, whose dinner show in Bright has been a hugely popular attraction for fans of country music for over seven years, will step onto a stage tonight that many of their idols have walked on before them. The Walters Family will perform at Nashville’s premiere performance hall the Ryman Auditorium.
About 300 local fans will be bused down to see the Walters perform in Nashville.
“It’s a dream come true!”, says Kimberly Walters, one of the Walters members. “We have realized a lot of dreams in our career, but this is one of the biggest. We are truly honoured to have the opportunity to grace the stage of The Ryman.”
The Walters Family performance at the Ryman parallels the 84th Birthday Celebration of The Grand Ole Opry. The historic Ryman Auditorium is Nashville’s Premier Performance Hall. With the coming of the Grand Ole Opry show in 1943, the Ryman found its identity as the Mother Church of Country Music.
Built in 1892 by riverboat captain and Nashville businessman Thomas G. Ryman, the Ryman Auditorium has been hosting the world’s most celebrated artists and entertainers for over a century, incuding pioneering performers such as Bill Monroe, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline.
