Opry’s Circle Will Continue to be Unbroken


When the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak began shutting down country shows and events last week, the Grand Ole Opry immediately suspended all performances in front of a live audience through April 4. However, the institution has vowed to continue its near century-long tradition of live radio broadcasts.

This Saturday, the Opry’s circle will continue to be unbroken, thanks to performers Brad Paisley, Vince Gill and Marty Stewart.  The three country icons will take the stage together, each holding a guitar and standing six feet apart in order to maintain safe social distance.

The Opry availed itself of the power of modern technology in order to keep its show going, using a very small production crew and a limited number of artists delivering acoustic performances from the stage. Though there will be no one in the venue’s seats, you can tune in via the Opry’s Circle Network, or online at the Circle All Access’ Facebook and YouTube pages.
