There’s a first time for everything — and on Tuesday (August 2nd) Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil made his debut at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.
Blabbermouth reported Neil, who currently calls Nashville home, took the stage and tackled the Crue’s 1985 ballad “Home Sweet Home” with the hallowed venue’s house band. He was also joined on vocals by singer-songwriter Cherish Lee — the daughter of country legend Johnny Lee and Dallas actress Charlene Tilton.
Prior to performing the Crue classic, Vince Neil told the audience: “I moved to Tennessee seven years ago, and I live in Franklin out by Leiper’s Fork, and I see some friends and family out here, and I want to thank you guys for coming out. This is really a chilling thing — place to be standing up here, y’know?”
Motley Crue will next perform as part of the “Stadium” tour on August 5th and 6th at Boston’s Fenway Park.
