The pandemic may keep you from our seats, but that doesn’t mean the music has stopped. Join us for the Saturday Night Grand Ole Opry every weekend on Circle TV.
Since its first radio broadcast in 1925 on WSM, the Grand Ole Opry has been a Saturday night ritual for music lovers across the U.S. Fans tune in to hear performances from their country favorites and up-and-coming musicians. While Nashville’s COVID-19 health and safety guidelines required us to cancel live shows, Saturday nights at the Opry couldn’t be taken away.
The Grand Ole Opry is the radio and TV show that made country music famous. It premiered in 1925 and has aired twice a week every week since. Widely loved because of its format of featuring a mix of multiple new stars, superstars, and legends on each show, it quickly became a weekly staple for music lovers and a rite of passage for country’s biggest stars, from Kelsea Ballerini to Garth Brooks.
When stay-at-home orders went into effect in Nashville due to COVID-19, we knew we had to keep the Opry tradition alive while maintaining the safety of our audience, artists, and staff. So, we brought the Opry to our fans.
On March 14, 2020, we hosted the first Saturday Night Grand Ole Opry livestream. Mandy Barnett, Sam Williams, Bill Anderson, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Jeannie Seely, and Connie Smith played to an empty Opry House with thousands of viewers watching live from their homes. The next week, the show was back with Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, and Marty Stewart, and week after week the music has played on.
Audiences will be welcomed back to the Opry soon, but until we’re together again, join us each Saturday night for a front-row seat from your favorite seat, to the true home of country music.
Experience the spirit and tradition of the Opry for yourself through our Saturday Night Grand Ole Opry livestreams. Then plan a visit. Opry tours are happening now.
