As the Grand Ole Opry prepares to celebrate the re-opening of the Grand Ole Opry House just in time for its 85th Birthday, one of America’s most popular TV series is putting the icing on the cake. The Food Network’s Ace of Cakes will present an extraordinary one-of-a-kind Opry birthday cake on its show airing, tonight, Sept. 16. The cake was delivered in person on the stage of the Opry in June by head chef Duff Goldman and was designed and created by Goldman and staff at Charm City Bakery in Baltimore, MD.
The Opry is scheduled to return to the Opry House after having been displaced by this spring’s floods on Tues., Sept. 28 with performances by Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Diamond Rio, Jimmy Dickens, Martina McBride, Del McCoury Band, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton,
Mel Tillis, Josh Turner, Keith Urban, and more.
The show will officially celebrate its 85th during its annual Birthday Bash Oct. 8 & 9. The Bash will feature three Opry shows including performances by Trace Adkins, Crystal Gayle, Del McCoury Band, Dolly Parton, and more; a salute to country comedy; a free Opry Plaza Birthday Party; and more.
