NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Grand Ole Opry is sponsoring a dance contest.

It will involve uploaded videos of contestants dancing to the Josh Turner hit "Why Don't We Just Dance."

The dance moves will be posted online, six finalists will be chosen and the public will vote on the winner this spring. The winner gets a trip to Nashville.

The Opry is a live country music show presented since 1925.
