Gville included on Don McLean’s 2024 Tour as he marks his 60th year in music

Marking his 60th year as a performer, and kicking off his 2024 U.S. tour, which includes a stop in Gainesville, Don McLean will make his Grand Ole Opry debut March 9.

“I have always been a fan of the Grand Ole Opry and country and western music,” said McLean in a statement. “Growing up, I would watch cowboy movies and listen to Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. My career has taken me all over the world, and now, it is taking me to the Grand Ole Opry.”

According to americansongwriter.com, McLean’s performance may pull from a career highlighted by top 20 hits, including “Castles In The Air,” “Cryin’,” “And I Love You So,” “Wonderful Baby,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Since I Don’t Have You,” “It’s Just The Sun,” and “If We Try,” along with his classic “American Pie” from 1971.

He’ll be at Gainesville’s Boot Barn Hall July 20. It’s the only Georgia stop on his 2024 tour.
