This September, the air at Bryant Park is filled with the sweet sounds of country music. Not only are we hosting the biggest Square Dance in town on September 22, but also, in the weeks leading up to that annual event, the Grand Ole Opry®’s famed wood circle and signature microphone return to Southwest Porch for a two-part concert series presented by Southwest Airlines.

The Opry Circle Throwdown is free and features live performances by three up-and-coming country acts. Here’s the line-up:  

While you’re at the Porch, have a bite to eat along with a beer, glass of wine, or a cocktail. Food and beverages are available for purchase and prepared by Ark Restaurants.
