The Grascals At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
The six-piece bluegrass band, The Grascals, was founded in 2004. Since then, they have released two albums, won several awards and have taken the stage at the Grand Ole Opry. The group is made up of members Terry Eldredge and Jamie Johnson on guitar and vocals, Danny Roberts on mandolin, Terry Smith on upright bass and vocals, Kristin Scott Benson on banjo and Jeremy Abhsire on fiddle. The band started with Eldredge, Johnson, Jimmy Mattingly and Dave Talbot. The four asked Smith and Roberts to join the band and the group played one of their first performances at the Station Inn later that summer, with special guest Bobby Osborne. In 2004, despite the group’s beliefs that they wouldn’t be going anywhere, Dolly Parton showed interest in the group and The Grascals became her opening act. The band played at both Dollywood and, later, the Grand Ole Opry.
