The Grand Ole Opry will tally its 4,924th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on May 16 with a showcase featuring Opry members Keith Urban and Kelsea Ballerini, as well as Morgan Evans.
The show will air at 7 p.m. CT on 650 AM WSM and be broadcast live on Circle Television, as well as streamed on Circle’s Facebook and YouTube.
On May 2, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood took the stage for the 4,922nd consecutive Saturday night Opry show, while Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Dustin Lynch and Gwen Stefani performed for the 4,923rd show on May 9.
For the past nine weeks during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Grand Ole Opry has aired without an audience present. The Opry has aired every Saturday for more than 90 years. Opry fans are invited to contribute to the Opry’s #UNBROKEN charitable campaign, which raises money for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund to benefit artists and musicians struggling through the pandemic.
