NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 30, 2021) - The Big Machine Music City Grand Prix and the Grand Ole Opry are excited to announce The Oak Ridge Boys will be headlining the Grand Ole Prix show on Sunday night following the race.

The Opry show at the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix will close out the three-day festival, where fans and attendees will get a chance to experience the true heart of Nashville, as the Opry has been home to country music for 95 years.
