The Grand Ole Opry is getting the silver screen treatment through a new concert film, which is extending to theaters across North America.

American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry, the first feature film shot on the famed concert stage, premiered in a limited run in December, and according to a press release, the film will expand to select Carmike Cinemas and North American theaters on Feb. 12.

Starring in the film are Opry members Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Darius Rucker, who provide backstage interviews, as well as the Band Perry and Brett Eldredge.

Original performances include Paisley singing “American Saturday Night” and “Country Nation,” Shelton with “Boys ‘Round Here” and “Gonna,” Rucker with “Wagon Wheel” and “So I Sang,” the Band Perry with “If I Die Young,” and Brett Eldredge performing his first No. 1 song, “Don’t Ya.” Filming took place on Aug. 31 at the historic venue in Nashville.

“I’m so proud to be a part of it,” Rucker says. “I’m one of the artists in it, talking about being a member of the Opry. I go there when I don’t play, just to talk to people and hang out. I’ve seen Vince [Gill] there, not playing, just hanging out, Marty Stuart, Little Jimmy [Dickens], Jim Ed Brown, God rest his soul. I love being a member.”
