As Nashvillians, we have a soft spot for the Grand Ole Opry. Arguably the highlight of Nashville, this legendary landmark has a long history of great country and gospel music.

lilDRAGON recently had the opportunity to work for the Grand Ole Opry Archive division to create this promotional video. It will be used to sell licensing for over ninety years of iconic photos, videos, and recordings of some of the greatest names in the country music industry.

It was a unique experience to work with footage of country music legends like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley & more. Not only did we get to shed light on current country musicians, we also brought life to the older legends of country music.

Fun tidbit: the photo wall in the video was inspired by a wall backstage in the Opry, lined with framed pictures of thousands of performers over the years.
