NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Chonda Pierce, America’s best-selling female comedian, returned to the Grand Ole Opry® stage over the weekend in advance of her new film, “Chonda Pierce: Enough,” hitting theaters across the country April 25 for one night. Pierce joined a star-studded Opry lineup including Charles Esten, star of CMT’s hit television series “Nashville”; rising Arista Nashville recording artist Seth Ennis; multi-GRAMMY® Award winner Ricky Skaggs; and Grand Ole Opry® members Jeannie Seely, The Whites, and John Conlee, among others.

“I am always honored to be on the Opry, and it was wonderful to return to the stage that holds so many special memories for me,” Pierce said. “It was a joy to reconnect with many artists I am blessed to call friends, and to be able to be there Easter weekend made it especially meaningful.”

Following her 2015 box office hit, “Laughing In The Dark,” “Chonda Pierce: Enough” will hit nearly 800 theaters across the country April 25 at 7 pm for one night.
