“I’ve been waiting for this moment since I was little. There are so many videos of me at nine years old, playing a guitar that was bigger than me in the house I grew up in. I’d put on shows for my parents and grandparents in Virginia, and we’d all pretend they were watching me on the Grand Ole Opry stage,” shares Springsteen. “Getting the FaceTime call from Luke [Bryan] was surreal. I was 10 years old when I saw him play ‘Rain Is A Good Thing’ at the Opry. I had just taken a tour with my parents and we got to watch the show from the pews onstage, which I thought was the coolest thing. It was one of those moments that added fuel to the fire as I realized I wanted to chase this dream. After I hung up with Luke, I called my parents and grandparents. I’m so grateful they’re going to be there to watch me play. To be fair, they’ve seen me play the Opry hundreds of times, but we won’t have to use our imaginations on October 18! Thank you to the entire Opry team for the invite, and to Luke for taking the time to make this an extra special memory for me. “I GET TO PLAY THE OPRY!”

Springsteen will kick off 2023 as the special guest on Adam Doleac’s ‘Barstool Whiskey Wonderland’ tour. Running February through May, tickets go on sale this Friday (10/7) at 10 a.m. (local). For a full list of tour dates and ticketing information, please visit
