Ricky Skaggs, Dailey & Vincent to Perform on Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry tradition continues now for the sixth week in a row during the Coronavirus outbreak, as 15-time Grammy winner and Opry member since 1982 Ricky Skaggs will take the stage, along with one of the institution’s more recent members, bluegrass duo Dailey & Vincent who were inducted in early 2017.

“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 Daily & Vincent. It’s gonna be a really fun show.”

Saturday, April 18th will mark the 4,920th consecutive Saturday night broadcast in the Grand Ole Opry’s nearly 95-year-old history. The show has received special exception to the city’s shelter in place orders for everything but essential business from Nashville Mayor John Cooper. No crowd is present for the shows, and there’s no backing band. Only essential sound and camera personnel, and a host from radio station WSM, and Bobby Bones for the live video feed on television and online.

These artist-only, acoustic performances have held a special weight since they started, with Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Marty Stuart, Ashley McBryde, Terri Clark, Lauren Alaina, Trace Adkins, T. Graham Brown, and others taking the stage during performances that are sure to go down in the history books due to the unusual circumstances.

Fans can watch live via the embedded player below, on the new Circle Network via local affiliates of the expanding channel (check availability), or on the Circle Network’s Facebook Page, or on The Circle Network’s YouTube page, or listen via WSM. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. Central.
