NASHVILLE, TN (August 18, 2021) –A childhood dream realized and fulfilled, TIERA stepped inside the legendary wooden circle to make her Grand Ole Opry debut last night (8/17). Introduced by labelmate and newest Opry member Carly Pearce, Tiera opened her performance with standout track “Found It In You” featured on her self-titled debut EP before transitioning to an unreleased song “Can’t Help My Country.” Leading up to the memorable event, Tiera shared a throwback photo on social media from her first visit to the Grand Ole Opry seven years ago. Her debut truly marked a full circle moment in the sacred circle. “I’ve always dreamed of singing my songs on the Grand Ole Opry stage and it means so much to me that I get to do that tonight,” Tiera shared from the stage. “This is a moment I will never forget.” Emerging as one of the most exciting voices in the format, Tiera has been named an ‘Artist to Watch’ by Teen Vogue, Nashville Lifestyles, CMT, Spotify’s Hot Country, Country Now and Sounds Like Nashville. Additionally, she has earned critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, American Songwriter, PEOPLE, E! News and Nashville Scene. When not in the writer’s room or recording studio, she hosts a daily radio show on Apple Music Country called The Tiera Show. Tiera is currently working on new music for her debut release via The Valory Music Co.
