Chicago White Sox, Grand Ole Opry to Celebrate 'Country Music Night'
The Chicago White Sox are bringing a taste of the Grand Ole Opry to U.S. Cellular Field for “Country Music Night,” presented by Coca-Cola, on Friday, July 8, for the 7:10 p.m. home game against the Atlanta Braves.
New country hit-maker Chase Bryant is scheduled to take the field just before the game for an Opry Circle Throwdown. Bryant will throw down and perform an acoustic “Rock the Sox” set on a replica of the famed six-foot Opry Circle of wood which was removed from the historic Ryman Auditorium and placed center stage at the Opry House when the venue opened more than 40 years ago. Bryant announced his upcoming White Sox set during a performance on the Opry stage Tuesday night.
The White Sox will celebrate country music before the game with a live radio broadcast with US99*5 at U.S. Cellular Field from 3 to 7 p.m. and throughout the game with a first pitch from US99*5 afternoon on-air talent Kasper, a Country Music Night Party Shop in Section 159, country music giveaways as well as country music played throughout the ballpark. The night will conclude with a postgame fireworks show accompanied by video footage from the Opry stage featuring Bryant and other Opry favorites.
The White Sox offer specially priced tickets for country music fans along with their family and friends, with tickets starting as low as $16. The first 1,500 fans to purchase tickets at whitesox.com/country will receive a special Sox mesh baseball cap.
