Joe Diffie with NewFound Road on the Opry

Tonight (10/29) is a big night for Tim Shelton and NewFound Road. They make their Grand Ole Opry debut this evening, performing with Joe Diffie in support of, Homecoming, his new bluegrass project on Rounder.

When I spoke with Tim earlier today, he said that they still weren’t sure which songs they would perform, but he was dead-certain that he and the guys were stoked about their Opry debut.

“We’re thrilled to join Joe on this legendary stage!”

Their set is scheduled during the show’s first segment, between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. (EDT). Also appearing tonight are Mike Snider and Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys.

You can hear the Opry over the air on WSM 650 AM, or listen online.
