Part of the Tennessee Theatre's Pass the Mic series, Black Opry Revue will feature Sunny War, Chris Pierce, Buffalo Nichols, Adia Victoria, and a special set from War and Pierce. The Black Opry is a home for Black artists and fans of country, blues, folk, and Americana music. We invite you to discover, support, and enjoy the Black artists that make magic in this space. One of the most valuable aspects of country music is its versatility and diversity in sound. Country, blues, folk, and Americana music often overlap or weave together – these artists explore all of those sounds and intersections. The Black Opry Revue showcases the diversity in sound and stories that Black artists offer to these genres.
