Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, the Band Perry and Darius Rucker are among the country stars who took part in the filming of American Saturday Night Live from the Grand Ole Opry.

Backstage footage, insight into personalities and relationships, plus performances are all featured in the film, or as Kimberly Perry puts it, "it's like a mega behind-the-scenes version of The Opry."

In the film, Shelton performs five songs, including "Hillbilly Bone," "Boys 'Round Here," "Gonna," "Ol' Red" and "Sangria."

"The main goal of my career was to be an Opry member," Paisley said. "Once you get that, it becomes so much more than that. It becomes family and friendships and part of your life, really. These people out here from [Opry general manager] Pete [Fisher] to artists like Bill Anderson and Jeannie Seely and the people I associate with these backstage experiences, there's so many great memories now."

American Saturday Night Live from the Grand Ole Opry is expected to hit theaters this winter.
