After disappearing from the airwaves in the mid-1980s, the Grand Ole Opry is finally making its return to television screens across the nation with the announcement of a brand new channel.
Beginning in early 2020, Gray Television will bring the brand new “Circle” network to 93 markets across the United States – and this channel promises to deliver movies, news, documentaries, licensed programs, and archival footage all centered around the Opry and the heart of country music.
As of the October 17th announcement, the Circle Network has announced that they will be delivering a weekly broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry with further details few and far between.
The last time that the Grand Ole Opry was broadcast regularly on television was back in 1985 when The Nashville Network (now called USA) aired The Grand Ole Opry Live. Over the following few years, it moved to Great American Country and then was cut out.
We anxiously await the return of this beloved part of country music and are thrilled to see what they have in store for programming.
