The Grand Ole Opry will tally its 4,942nd consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Sept. 19 with a showcase featuring Opry member Ricky Skaggs, Brothers Osborne and Wendy Moten.
The one-hour show, which is being dubbed Opry at Bonnaroo, will air live on Circle Television at 7 p.m. CT. The show will also stream live on Circle’s YouTube. The Opry was originally scheduled to be part of this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival for the third consecutive year, before the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Grand Ole Opry has aired without an audience present since March 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a number of stars have helped keep the Opry’s Saturday night shows rolling along, including Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Clint Black, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Luke Combs, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood and more.
