(CNN) -- The Grand Ole Opry House, closed for nearly five months of repairs after record amounts of rain sent water 2 feet above its historic stage, reopens with a concert Tuesday night in Nashville, Tennessee.

Among the stars scheduled for the show are Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band, Martina McBride, Del McCoury, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban, the Opry's website said.

"The Opry is returning to the Opry House for the first time since having been displaced by May's Nashville flood," it said.

Shows scheduled at the facility were moved to other Nashville venues during repairs.

Record flood waters damaged instruments, memorabilia and archival tapes at the country music landmark. The neighboring Gaylord Opryland Resort, a 2,881-room hotel, also was closed for restoration and is scheduled to reopen on November 15.

The massive flooding caused more than $1.5 billion in property damage in the Nashville area, city officials said at the time.
