The Beach Boys and LOCASH have announced they will kick off summer for the legendary venue, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, on Friday, May 27. The two bands are set to share the historic stage after uniting on LOCASH’s current single, “Beach Boys,” which features Mike Love and Bruce Johnston.
LOCASH’s latest release is less California-pop and more Southern-infused ode to the legendary ’60s act. “Beach Boys” pulls elements from the 1963 track “I Get Around” off Little Deuce Coupe with overdubbed lyrics from the original Beach Boys tune placed over the new country tribute.
The forthcoming performance will serve as The Beach Boys’ inaugural appearance on the Grand Ole Opry stage. The band also shared that video clips from the show will be featured in Opry Live later this summer.
The event is a part of the Grand Ole Opry’s summer kick-off, which will commence earlier in the day on May 27, with a performance by Walker Country. The gig is a part of “Opry Loves the 90s” Plaza Party, sponsored by Truist, Mid-South Ford Dealers and Dollar General, and will include additional performances by Hannah Ellis (June 7), Ray Fulcher (June 11) and more, later this summer.
Tickets for The Beach Boys and LOCASH at the Grand Ole Opry are on sale now and can be purchased here.
