NASHVILLE, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- The Grand Old Opry will return to its permanent home in September after being displaced for months due to a devastating flood in Nashville, Opry officials said.

A star-packed show at the Grand Old Opry House is being planned for Sept. 28 to mark the occasion.

Among the artists scheduled to perform are Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Diamond Rio, Jimmy Dickens, Del McCoury Band, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Mel Tillis and Josh Turner.

The show is to air live on GAC: Great American Country. Special events and artist appearances will follow throughout October.

"We cannot wait for the curtain to go up as we launch a new chapter in the Opry's history on Sept. 28, just in time to celebrate our 85th birthday. There is no doubt the next two months are going to be some of the most memorable and emotional ever for our performers and fans," Grand Ole Opry Group President Steve Buchanan said in a statement Wednesday.

The Opry has not missed any shows since the flood, broadcasting from several Nashville venues -- including former Opry homes like the Ryman Auditorium and the War Memorial Auditorium -- officials said.
