MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil made his live debut at Nashville’s historic country music venue, The Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday night (August 2).
Vince, who has lived just outside of Nashville for the last 7 years, performed the MÖTLEY CRÜE classic “Home Sweet Home” with the house band while also being joined for the performance by singer-songwriter Cherish Lee.
Prior to his performance, Vince told the audience: “I moved to Tennessee seven years ago, and I live in Franklin out by Leiper’s Fork, and I see some friends and family out here, and I want to thank you guys for coming out. This is really a chilling thing — place to be standing up here, you know.”
Announcer for the Opry, Bill Cody, introduced Vince as “international superstar, accomplished businessman, heartfelt philanthropist, and his unmistakable voice led the greatest rock songs of a generation.”
The Grand Ole Opry shared a short video of Neil’s appearance on social media, writing in an accompanying message: “The Opry has a long-standing tradition of inviting guest artists into the circle, and we were thrilled to continue that tradition with @thevinceneil tonight! Congratulations on your Opry debut!” Neil also tweeted about the performance and thanked Cherish for taking part in it.
The Grand Ole Opry is one of the oldest and most revered music institutions in the United States, being known by many as “a countrified version of the Metropolitan Opera.”
