The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville is celebrating it’s 95th anniversary with a special two hour show on Sunday.

All performances for the special were recorded at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee.

“This special is going to capture so much of what makes the Opry a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience,” Dan Rogers, Opry Vice President and Executive Producer said in a press release.

“10-year Opry member Blake and 20-year member Brad guide us through a powerful Opry debut, an Opry membership invitation given to one of country’s most awarded vocal groups, performances of some of today’s chart-topping hits and timeless songs that have rung out from the Opry stage for decades, and a look back at cherished members of the Opry family and musical moments that have come to define the Opry we know today,” Rogers continued.

The special airs Sunday night on NBC at 9 p.m.
