Boy Named Banjo Make Their Grand Ole Opry Debut! Go Behind the Scenes with the Bluegrass-Based Quintet
Barton Davies, Ford Garrard, Sam McCullough, Willard Logan and William Reames stepped into the circle for the first time on Tuesday evening. The band performed their songs "Go Out Dancing" and "Heart In Motion" for their debut at the Nashville institution.
We're all best buds and there's nothing we enjoy more than just goofing off in the green room before a show. Love how this photo captures a little bit of that!
Stepping into the circle was such a special moment. Since we're a five-piece band, we felt it was important that we all do it together. We thought it'd be cool to pay homage to our country and bluegrass heroes by gathering around a mic like they did in the early days of the Opry.
Getting to experience big moments like stepping onto the Opry stage for the first time with your best friends just makes them that much sweeter.
This is our BNB family right here. The people that have supported us from the very beginning and make this thing go. Everyone looks so happy. This night was for them just as much as it was for us, and we wouldn't be here without their love and support!
I don't think it truly hit us that we were about to play the Opry, until we saw our reserved parking spot and walked through the artist entrance. It was funny that we couldn't actually use the parking spot because our van and trailer were too big. Always an issue for us. 😂
We couldn't do what we do without these women right here. Being out on the road and away from home is always tough, but they are the ones that keep us going! So happy we could celebrate this moment with them.
