Kevin Bacon, an alum of the Grand Ole Opry stage, is wishing the premiere country music venue a happy 95th birthday in a new video.
If you’re visiting us here at Outsider.com, chances are you’re familiar with Bacon’s band. The Hollywood star is also a singer/songwriter, and has a country band called The Bacon Brothers with his – you guessed it – brother, Michael.
According to their band’s official website, “Kevin and Michael Bacon are only one degree removed from each other. And not even that when it comes to making music.
Music as been part of the Bacon Brothers’ lives since childhood. [And] as an actual band since a 1995 show in their home town of Philadelphia. It’s a respite from their day jobs — Kevin’s as an actor, Michael’s as a composer [in] New York. The duo has released eight studio albums.”
