When the original five members of Restless Heart returned to the stage of country music’s most hallowed hall on Friday night for the first time in some 15 years, they were keenly aware of the significance of their appearance on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. Despite being a veteran band that scored its first hit in 1985, the recently re-formed quintet felt a few butterflies before performing their latest chart-climbing single, “Feel My Way to You” and one of their biggest hits, “I’ll Still Be Loving You.”

“Being back at the Opry felt a little bit nervous there at the beginning,” admitted Larry Stewart. “But it’s an honor to finally get back on the Opry stage with the original five guys.”

Of Friday’s successful Opry outing, Stewart added, “Doing the Grand Ole Opry kind of makes it official – we’re back!”
