Natalie Stovall and the Drive to Make Grand Ole Opry Debut
It’s been a big year for Natalie Stovall and the Drive, and it’s about to get even bigger. Fresh off the heels of the release of their debut single, ‘Baby Come on With It,’ from their upcoming freshman album, the five-piece band will make their first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry next month.
Stovall, the lead singer of the group, previously graced the famous stage as a child, performing at the tender age of 12 as a solo artist. But now, to be able to return to the iconic venue with her band is a dream come true for the songstress.
“Singing on the Opry for the first time is a surreal experience, and getting to do it twice in one lifetime is unbelievable,” says Stovall. “We can’t wait to get out on that stage!”
The group, who are signed to HitShop/Warner Brothers Records, have been playing more than 200 dates a year, including college campuses, clubs and military bases all over the world. But while performing at the Opry is definitely something to cross off their bucket list, Stovall insists the band still have even loftier goals.
“I want people to know it’s possible to follow your dreams,” she notes. “The path isn’t always easy, but honestly, it shouldn’t be. If you surround yourself with the right people, even the hardest days can be a lot of fun. Someday I hope to sell out arenas with my band, performing music we are proud to play.”
Natalie Stovall and the Drive will perform at the Opry on May 6, along with Kix Brooks and gospel singers Keith and Kristyn Getty. More artists are expected to be added to the line-up shortly. Tickets are available for purchase here.
