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. Country came later, but once I was in, I was all in. I'm a history geek, so I love learning about classic country and anything attached to it. You might find me strolling the cemeteries of Nashville, having silent conversations with the songwriters and artists that shaped this amazing genre. I'm an amateur genealogist with over 20,000 people on my family tree. I'm a Buffalo, New York girl living in a Nashville, Tennessee world with my husband and my furry kids. My real kid is an adult and lives in New York with her own three daughters. I'm addicted to SongPop and I don't care to enter rehab to fix that. If you ask me about myself, I'll tell you I have an eight-year old mind, a 77-year old soul and a middle-aged body. I'm a mess. :)
