This Saturday, April 18, 2020, Ricky Skaggs will return to the Grand Ole Opry stage. Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, the Grand Ole Opry has remained on the air without a live audience. Helping to keep the circle unbroken, this Saturday’s broadcast will include bluegrass/gospel greats Dailey & VincentAndy Leftwich, Jeff Taylor and Seth Taylor. “Sure is gonna be great to be hosting the Grand Ole Opry this Saturday night,” says Skaggs. “I’ve really missed doing the show. It will certainly make me feel like things are somewhat getting back to normal. Hope you all enjoy my great co-hosts Dailey & Vincent. It’s gonna be a really fun show.”

The Opry will be broadcast live this Saturday at 8 PM/7PM CT on Circle All Access, Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates in addition to a companion live stream on Circle All Access Facebook and YouTube Channels. TV and radio personality Bobby Bones will host the Circle telecast, while Opry announcer Mike Terry will join the Opry’s radio audience at the announcer podium. Safe social distancing will be practiced with a very small production team and artists performing acoustically.

Fans may also tune in on the Opry flagship station WSM Radio 650-AM-WSM for the live broadcast (wsmonline.com) Opry fans are invited to contribute to the Opry’s #UNBROKEN charitable campaign which raises money for the MusicCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. The fund benefits artists and musicians struggling through the pandemic – some of the very people who write, make and create the music that has kept the music alive on the Opry stage for almost 95 years. Fans can donate via text UNBROKEN to 41444.

I’m Patti. Rock music is my first love. My daughter, who was a country fan as a teenager, dragged me in when I'd drive her to school and we would have radio wars in the car. I'd have on my rock station and she would switch it to the country station. Guess who always won? As they say, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, so I did. patti@thinkcountrymusic.com First it was all modern country, but my parents were big Merle Haggard fans. I went along with them to a Merle Haggard/Phil Vassar show at the local fair and that was it. I was hooked on the Hag. Since that day, I've become a fan of bluegrass and I continue to explore all facets of the country genre. I guess you could say, I'm all in. When I'm not up to my neck in any kind of music, I enjoy genealogy, history, my granddaughters and my addiction, SongPop. I guess it could be worse, right? I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world, and I'm livin' the dream with my husband, my dog and my two cats.
