Singer/Songwriter to Make Grand Ole Opry and Red Rocks Debuts
On August 25, Stevenson will make his debut on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. The evening’s live show, performed at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House and broadcast around the globe, will also feature appearances from ‘90s country chart-topper Deana Carter, Opry member and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs, and country newcomer Zach Top, with other performers to be announced.
In support of his Opry debut, Stevenson will be featured on WSM Radio/Circle Network’s “Coffee, Country & Cody” national morning show August 25, and he will appear August 23 on “Today in Nashville,” which airs throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky on Nashville’s NBC affiliate.
These upcoming musical milestones follow Stevenson’s fourth full-length Gotee set, ABLE, which released in April. A celebration of his identity in Christ, the album showcases such playlist favorites as “Closer,” depicting a watershed moment in Stevenson’s understanding of grace; and the title-cut, a soul-stirring testimony of God’s faithfulness. In addition, standout track “Carry Me” is Stevenson’s passionate plea for God’s fatherly tenderness, written in the wake of wrestling with fear, uncertainty, and feelings of rejection.
