The Nashville Star sixth-season winner will take the stage at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, August 16, and the performance will be broadcast live on the Great American Country network's Opry Live! show at 8PM ET/PT.

"Since I was 17 years old, I have been performing on the Opry circuit in Texas," said Lawson in a statement, People reported.  "To be acknowledged by the Grand Ole Opry and asked to perform is such an honor."

The 32-year-old mother of five boys took home Nashville Star's sixth-season title earlier this month and received a Warner Bros. record deal and a Toyota Tundra.  She also performed on the Today show at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing as part of her prize.

Her first single -- "What If It All Goes Right" -- was released the day after the finale and made its debut at No. 49 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs single sales chart.

Following her Opry performance, Lawson plans on returning to her home in Dalworthington Gardens, TX to spend time with her husband and their children before hitting the studio in Nashville to work on her album, People reported.
