It’s on! Nothing’s going to stop the 95-year streak Saturday night broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry! For its 4,941st week broadcast bound on September 5, it seems like they packed in a huge surprise. The show will be led by two of our biggest country stars and mass favorites, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.
Choosing to Innovate Instead of Just Adapting
Grand Ole Opry has been on the roll since 1925, and fans from all generations had been loyal in their support. There had been numerous changes from their studio’s location to the show’s producers and staffs. Despite various challenges, they chose to keep the streak going for the last 95 years it aired.
From March 19, they started broadcasting without an audience so as not to make health compromises. Admittedly, it’s hard to keep the morale going with this kind of setup. But this twist of fate is soon to be over as their next show will be kick-started by some of the artists we admire with a small population of audience to go make some noise!
This event is part of the third weekly live stream event of Grand Ole Opry for ‘KING and COUNTRY.’ It is co-hosted by the CMA Awards and will start the one hour stream for the Circle Television at 7:00 PM C.T. It will also consecutively stream on Circle’s Youtube channel, making it available for a variety of audiences worldwide. However, this isn’t the only show we have to keep track on our calendars because in a much earlier date, Jon Pardi, Runaway June, and Pam Tills will take the same stage on August 22.
More Stars to Watch Out For!
Because of the health protocols, artists cannot be on that world-renowned stage all at the same time. Big names like Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Clint Black, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Luke Combs, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood are all in queue for the stage. So don’t miss a beat and stay tuned on the latest updates from Opry!
The pandemic might have brought the industries down, but as we discover new ways to make use of media’s cutting-edge technology, the Grand Ole Opry starts its journey to innovate so they could providing world-class entertainment featuring all our ever-favorite country artists.
