Laura Story will make her Grand Ole Opry debut today, December 8, at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Story will perform songs from her debut Christmas album, God With Us. God With Us includes the track "Just Another Christmas," which Story hopes will serve as a reminder to herself and fans not to lose the wonder of Christmas this year. "What would it look like to celebrate the birth of Christ in a new and fresh way?" Story asks.
In our review of God With Us, this is what we said about the album: "As far as the more familiar carols are concerned, Story's acapella intro of "O Come O Come Emmanuel" is pure stunning. Just listening to how Story builds "Angels We Have Heard On High" up to a worshipful crescendo with her use of layered voices, explosive electric guitars, and hill-climbing percussion work is indeed an experience."
Story will join the ranks of legends who have taken part in the world-famous show, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. Additional performers tomorrow include Carrie Underwood, Chris Janson, Kristian Bush and more - a lineup set to play to back-to-back Opry shows at 7:00 and 9:30pm.
The following day, December 9, Story will be part of the 2015 Todd Starnes Fox News Radio Christmas special. The two-hour show will be filmed at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. "The Todd Starnes All-American Christmas" will be broadcast the week of Christmas on hundreds of FOX News Radio stations along with KCBI in Dallas, the entire American Family Radio network and the Bott Radio Network. The show will also be broadcast on FoxNews.com and FoxNation.com.
