The Grand Ole Opry will tally its 4,935th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Aug. 1 with a showcase featuring an iconic trio of friends: Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell. Collectively, the music legends have amassed 36 Grammy Awards and 109 nominations.
The one-hour show will air live on Circle Television at 7 p.m. CT, as well as stream live on Circle’s YouTube.
“There’s nothing better than singing with old and dear friends, especially if those friends happen to be Rodney and Vince,” said Emmylou.
On July 25, Chrissy Metz, CeCe Winans and Tracy Lawrence will step onto the Grand Ole Opry stage at 7 p.m. CT.
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 Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Luke Combs, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood and more.
