Evansville man to appear on the Grand Ole Opry

Nashville, TN (WNTV) Chris Black was selected as the grand prize winner of Friday’s “Sing at the Opry” contest hosted by 97.9 WSIX. He won with his rendition of Garth Brooks “The Dance”. An Evansville, Indiana native, Chris was shocked that he won and will now perform on stage with country music duo Montgomery Gentry live at the Opry on Saturday night. When asked if he was excited, Chris responded “Yes, but more nervous than anything”. Tune in Saturday night and cheer Chris on as he gets to appear on country music’s biggest stage!
