Commodity Classic attendees at Grand Ole Opry

Commodity Classic attendees will enjoy an exclusive show at the Grand Ole Opry during the Evening of Entertainment at the 2008 convention and trade show, Feb. 28 to March 1 in Nashville, Tenn.

Commodity Classic, the combined convention and trade show of the American Soybean Association (ASA), the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), and the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort across from the Grand Ole Opry.

The Opry, an American icon and Nashville's number one attraction, is world famous for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages.

What began as a simple radio broadcast in 1925 is now a live entertainment phenomenon. Dedicated to honoring country music's rich history and dynamic present, the Grand Ole Opry showcases a mix of country legends and the contemporary chart toppers who have followed in their footsteps.

“Once again, Commodity Classic is excited to bring top music talent as entertainment for our attendees,” said Commodity Classic co-chair and NCGA Corn Board member Theresa Schmalshof. “The Evening of Entertainment is one of the highlights of the event, and we are certain the Grand Ole Opry will deliver a great performance.”

“The level of talent and variety of musicians available to us through the Opry is like no other. The Evening of Entertainment at Commodity Classic will be a night to remember for all,” said Commodity Classic co-chair and ASA Vice President Randy Mann.

Commodity Classic will also feature valuable educational sessions, cutting-edge technological demonstrations, association banquets, entertainment events, and important networking opportunities.
