Christian Lopez will make his debut Grand Ole Opry performance set for January 27, 2024. The announcement follows the release of Lopez’ record Magdalena.
“I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for the opportunity. The Opry has been a dream of mine ever since I began writing songs. For it to be ‘Magdalena’ that finally led me here, reminds me to stay true to myself and never stop” said the rising star.
Christian Lopez is an artist who puts all of his eggs in one basket. The singer-songwriter spent the last 2 years in a tiny New Mexican town called, Magdalena, writing and recording in a small adobe casita, on a mission to conjure the purest sounds and songs from the deepest depths of himself. With the help of producer, Robert Adam Stevenson, who also produced Lopez’s last project The Other Side (2021), and drummer Carl Thomson, Christian delivers a new full-length album laced with some of Lopez’s hardest, most joyful, and most spiritual songs to date. Lopez’s work was interrupted in April 2022 when his little brother tragically overdosed on fentanyl in his hometown of Martinsburg, West Virginia. Heartbroken, Lopez shifted his outlook to focus on one mission: “to leave something real behind.. “.. Magdalena, his fourth full-length album, is just that, with the representation of Lopez’s constantly altering state, his acoustic guitar playing, soaring vocals, and songs that focus less on a hook and more about hooking you to a feeling. You could say Christian Lopez has come a long way since his 2014 Dave Cobb-produced debut, but now age 27, he’s truly just getting started.BEST Nashville Concert Tickets!
