We’re not in Wrentham anymore. Ayla Brown, daughter of former US Senator Scott Brown, will make her debut at the legendary Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on May 25. The former “American Idol” contestant is a country singer these days, and will perform two songs — “Pride of America” and “Hero in Her Hometown” — from her new CD. “When I moved to Nashville two years ago, I went to my first Opry show and was mesmerized during the entire two hours,” Brown said in a statement. “To get the opportunity to debut on that stage on Memorial Day weekend is such an honor, and I will never forget this for the rest of my life.” She’s on a bill that also includes Steve Wariner and Vince Gill. . . . We’re also excited to see Boston’s Ahmir perform Monday on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” The group, which will be backed by Fallon’s house band, The Roots, have said they’re dedicating the performance to the people of Boston after the tragic events of the Marathon.
