Christian Lopez will make his debut Grand Ole Opry performance this Saturday, January 27. Ahead of the performance, Lopez is thrilled to share his brand new song titled “I’m Not Alone.”

“This song goes out to the ‘hopeless romantic.’ I wrote this song thinking about the person I love most, and the deeper understanding that it’s the most vital part of our nature."

Lopez’s Opry Debut and new song follow his' deeply personal record Magdalena which was released in 2023.

“The universe has a way of peeling back the layers to either break us down or give us clarity,” says Lopez. “ It was a year ago this past April that I lost my little brother to a fentanyl overdose in West Virginia, and it’s been a year since I married the love of my life. I’ve felt love and loss that I never would’ve expected this early in my journey, but now as I get older, my only goal is to leave behind the purest form of what I can do and give. This album is just that.. no frills, no cowrites, no studio band, no compromises...Just me.”

Born and raised in Martinsburg WV, Christian Lopez burst onto the music scene with his Dave Cobb-produced debut in 2014 (EP Pilot & album Onward 2015).

Followed up by his sophomore album, Red Arrow, in 2017, Lopez featured guest collaborators like Vince Gill & Kenneth Pattengale, garnering him a wider audience and setting him up for the national touring life he lives today. Over the years, Lopez's Americana has morphed into a more genre-blending "folk rock" sound; but in every original song, a trace of Lopez's Appalachian upbringing rings through in the strains of his guitar playing, and the imagery of his lyrics.

In 2021, Lopez released his 3rd studio album, The Other Side, alongside producer Robert Adam Stevenson, eventually teaming up together again for his most recent release, Magdalena written and recorded in self-imposed exile in Magdalena, NM. (Out June 9, 2023)
