Presenting: The Grand Ole Punta Gorda Opry
By Michael W. Pierce – Country Aficionado Media
Today, The Suncoast Country Opry Show, LLC and Nashville Recording Artist Johnny Lee Howard announced the new home for his company’s monthly country music opry show. Punta Gorda, FL is the location and the GULF THEATER AT THE MILITARY HERITAGE MUSEUM is the venue. These unique country music variety shows will be officially billed as “The Grand Ole Punta Gorda Opry.”
“It’s sort of a mouthful to say and write (The Grand Ole Punta Gorda Opry), so we’re just referring to this whole deal as ‘The Opry’,” Howard says, with a laugh. “Ok, so ‘The Opry’ is a dream come true for me. I’ve always believed that our community is thirsty for high-quality country music entertainment and variety. A place where fans can gather in appreciation for the music they love to listen to and see it performed live at a professional level. The Grand Ole Opry show in Nashville, TN is the model that we’re shooting for.” But, Howard is quick to point out that his opry show has one very distinct advantage over that other ‘Grand Ole’ opry: “It’s a whole lot sunnier and warmer here in beautiful Punta Gorda, Florida!”
The Grand Ole Punta Gorda Opry is set to debut on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10, 2020, and will continue monthly on the 2nd Sunday of the month throughout the year. Showtime for The Opry is 2 PM, and tickets go on sale beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. ET. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.sccopry.com, or by calling 877-712-OPRY.
