Warren Haynes and Railroad Earth made their Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday night. On tour promoting the new release “Ashes and Dust” they made the Opry, the home of Country/Americana Music, one of their stops.
The Grand Ole Opry is celebrating it's 90th birthday this year. It still operates as a Radio broadcast show with each artist getting a 2 song slot. Warren and the band were hosted by Mike Snider, who praised Warren's accomplishments and welcomed him warmly for his Opry debut.
They played “Company Man” and then Warren announced he was going to play a song the audience would recognize as one of Garth brook's early big hits. But as he informed them, “Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House” is actually a song he wrote. The crowd loved them, their Opry debut a definite success.
