article imageFemale country artist with Mariachis makes Grand Ole Opry history

By Markos Papadatos     Oct 4, 2018 in Music
On October 2, singer-songwriter Stephanie Urbina Jones made Grand Ole Opry history with her breakthrough performance at the hallowed venue.
She became the first female recording artist to perform with Mariachis on stage in the Opry's 93-year history. The songstress kicked off her opry set with a performance of Charley Pride's chart-topping single "Is Anybody Goin' to San Antone," and she sang "Rose Garden" in honor of the late Lynn Anderson. She also sang Dolly Parton's "Jolene."
These three aforementioned songs are included on her latest honky tonk classic country mariachi album, Tularosa. Producer Patterson Barrett joined her on the iconic Grand Ole Opry stage along with the seven-piece band, Mariachi Internacional Nueva Galicia.
This performance was fitting since it took place during Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15.
Stephanie Urbina Jones will be performing at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on October 28. At this forthcoming performance, she will be joined with the mariachis for their Musician's Spotlight at the Ford Theatre.
Tularosa is available on iTunes and on Spotify.
