It’s TBT, and we’re throwing it back to the 90s — a time when Garth had “Friends in Low Places” + Alan was “Livin’ on Love.”
Excuse the puns, but we’re feeling extra nostalgic for the Grand Ole Opry’s new “Opry Loves The 90s” interactive exhibit. It opened to the public this week as part of the Opry’s ongoing celebration of 90s country music and will be on display through the end of the year.
What’s you’ll see
The exhibit — located at the Acuff House at Opryland — is truly a time capsule. Guests can walk through a 1990s bedroom adorned with posters (we spy Deana Carter, Garth Brooks, and Vince Gill) and try their hand at 90s country music trivia on a gaming console.
If you were a country fan in the 1990s, you probably got a little too inspired by teased hair, denim jackets + mini sunglasses. The exhibit embraces the era’s fashion with a fit worn by Alan Jackson — a red sleeveless shirt, light wash jeans, and cowboy boots to match. Other items to note include a dress worn by Martina McBride + jacket from Marty Stuart.
Upcoming 90s-themed shows
- Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Opry will host free 90s Country Plaza Parties that run each Friday and Saturday through Labor Day + again on Fridays and Saturdays in October — all in celebration of the 97th Opry anniversary.
- The Opry will include special nods to 90s country during each Opry show. See the full calendar.
- Carrie Underwood + The Oak Ridge Boys will be joined by Jon Pardi, Henry Cho, and Morgan Wade to kick off CMA Fest week with two shows on Tues., June 7 at 7 and 9:30 p.m.
