NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- An all-star jam band of Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs and Steve Wariner will kick off the Grand Ole Opry's 85th birthday celebration.

The quartet of accomplished pickers will join together May 25 in Nashville, Tennessee, to launch months of celebrations at the Opry through December with a birthday party and shows planned for Oct. 8-9.

The Opry plans up to four shows a week over the summer with performances by Lady Antebellum, Charley Pride and the Oak Ridge Boys scheduled along with exhibits and activities.

Gill, Paisley, Skaggs and Wariner will take part in the Tuesday Night Opry program individually, then finish the show together, interpreting some of the Opry's most notable songs.
