Often referred to as the home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry provides artists with the opportunity to perform with their mentors, to sit down with a fellow artist and share stories that only artists can relate to, and to walk backstage and feel like they're at home.

This feeling of family is why, on the Opry's 40th Birthday in 1965, Opry management decided to start the Opry Trust Fund whose mission is to help those in the country music industry when they need it the most, offering financial assistance during their time of need.
