Kyle Dillingham to debut at Grand Ole Opry July 24

Ponca City Now - July 18, 2019 3:36 pm

Americana and bluegrass fiddling phenom Kyle Dillingham is thrilled to announce he will be making his debut as a guest artist on the Grand Ole Opry on Wednesday, July 24.

Dillingham, joined by his band Horseshoe Road, will give a two song performance, and be introduced to the stage by Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame members, the Oak Ridge Boys. 

“Equally exciting and noteworthy as this Opry debut is the news that the legendary Oak Ridge Boys are going to be introducing me to the stage,” Dillingham said. “My relationship with the Oaks is very special to me. It is also a great joy to know I will be performing with my band, Horseshoe Road, and have a chance to share this incredible experience with my dear friends and musical collaborators, Peter Markes and Brent Saulsbury.”

Dillingham is often referred to as Oklahoma’s Musical Ambassador, having performed in 40 countries internationally as a solo artist, and eight countries internationally with his band Horseshoe Road.

They recently completed their second American Music Abroad tour, traveling and performing throughout Kuwait and the Republic of Kosovo. 

Dillingham and his band were selected from a pool of over 300 artists, and were one of only 15 artists selected to perform in the program sanctioned by the U.S. Department of State.

Excited about the opportunity to return to Nashville to perform on Bluegrass and Country music’s biggest stage, Dillingham said, “In all the excitement, it can be easy to lose focus. But I hear the voice of my manager, Jim Halsey, reminding us all that we have another great opportunity to change people’s lives with our music. And if even one person is inspired, encouraged or healed by our performance that night, then this Opry debut with my band will be a tremendous success for me.”

Dillingham and Horseshoe Road have appeared multiple times at The Poncan Theatre and are fan favorites.
