The Grand Ole Opry will continue their virtual Saturday night performances amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. For their next show on June 6, Carly Pearce, Michael Ray, Lee Brice and Steve Wariner will make an appearance.
For over 90 years, the Opry has aired every Saturday night performance and this upcoming Saturday will mark the 4,927th consecutive Saturday night broadcast. Fans can watch Saturday's show at 7 p.m. CT on 650 AM WSM, and the program will also be broadcast live on Circle Television and streamed on Circle’s Facebook and YouTube at 7 p.m. CT.
Ahead of her upcoming performance, Pearce turned to social media to reflect on her five-year anniversary of playing the Grand Ole Opry for the first time. "5 years ago today, this girl stepped into the circle for the very first time," she recalled. "My whole life I thought that once I played the #opry, I would’ve known I “made it”. What’s funny is on this night, I had no record deal, no songs on the radio, no tour... I was an @airbnb cleaner, trying every which way I could to get my “break” in Nashville."
She continues, "Sometimes OUR plan isn’t God’s & that’s okay. Fast forward to now, and next week I will play that stage for the 75th time, and have been so grateful to build such a strong relationship with the Opry over the last 5 years."
The Opry has aired without a live audience present since March 19 due to the pandemic. Recent performers include Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Evans, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and more.
