William Shatner has a date with destiny at the Grand Ole Opry.
The iconic “Star Trek” actor is scheduled to perform at the equally iconic Nashville show on Feb. 15. Shatner, 87, will be joined by Jeff Cook from Country Music Hall of Fame band Alabama.
Shatner and Cook worked together on the former’s new country album Why Not Me. The Canadian entertainer will perform songs from the album such as “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drink Alone” and “Too Old to Be Vegan”.
Shatner joins the likes of Bill Murray, Rita Wilson, and Billy Bob Thorton as actors who have graced “The Show That Made Country Music Famous”.
Do not let Shatner’s famous acting roles fool you. He has been a longtime musician who has released musical projects as early as 1968 when he debuted The Transformed Man.
He released two projects in 2018: the country album Why Not Me and the Christmas record Shatner Claus.
