The circle remains unbroken.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, concerts originally scheduled throughout March and April have been postponed. That means shows at the Grand Ole Opry were put on hold as well.
On March 13, the Opry announced it was going to “pause performances that include a live audience through April 4.” However, it was made clear the Opry would still continue, in both old and new ways.
You see, the Opry started off as a Saturday night radio show. It has remained on the air for nearly a century, having aired over 4,900 consecutive Saturday night shows.
Now, the power of technology gives folks a new way to tune in to the Opry. The performances now air on live TV on the new Circle Network and also appear in online livestreams.
During this time, a handful of performers have come in to the Opry every Saturday to keep the tradition going. Sam Williams (the grandson of Hank Williams and son of Hank Williams Jr.) was among the artists who sang during the Opry’s first show since announcing its closure to live spectators.
For week two, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, and Marty Stuart united to deliver a nearly hour-long show to entertain fans stuck at home. During the show, they paid tribute to Kenny Rogers, who passed away the day prior (March 20) at the age of 81.
Now, Vince will return to the Opry stage for the second week in a row, and this time he’s bringing his family.
“This Saturday, we’ll be welcoming @vincegillofficial, @amygrantofficial and their daughters Jenny Gill and Corrina Grant Gill into the Circle,” the Opry’s post read on social media.

If you’ve never heard Jenny or Corrina sing before, be sure to check out the video below. They sang the National Anthem with their dad prior to a Nashville Predators match in 2017, and everyone who heard the performance was amazed.
Hats off to the Gill family for keeping country music’s greatest tradition going during this trying time.
