T. Graham Brown, Trace Adkins, Jason Crabb on The Grand Ole Opry

Celebrating Easter early, and once again offering one of the few live entertainment options amid the Coronavirus shutdown, traditional country artist T. Graham Brown, Grand Ole Opry member Trace Adkins, and Southern Gospel singer Jason Crabb will all hold forth from the Grand Ole Opry house in Nashville Saturday April 11th, keeping the Opry tradition alive despite no live audience, no backing band, and limited support crew.

As people around the world prepare for an Easter weekend like none of us have ever seen before, we’re thrilled that three of the most soulful voices to ever visit the Opry stage have signed on to bring community and great music to us this Saturday night,” says Dan Rogers, Opry vice president and executive producer. “I know they’ll deliver not only their hits, but also some praise and hope from the Opry stage to fans worldwide.”

Now for the fifth week in a row, the Opry will receive special exception from the City of Nashville that is currently under stay-at-home orders to broadcast for the 4,919th consecutive time on Saturday night in its 94-year-old history. The broadcasts during the COVID-19 crisis have been very popular, drawing viewers and listeners from 66 separate countries.

Opry announcer Charlie Mattos will also be at the podium hosting the event for the radio audience, while Bobby Bones will be there for the video feed offering little to nothing of value.

“I’m so happy that the Grand Ole Opry tradition of weekly live broadcasts is able to continue bringing the music and fun to it’s loyal audience,” says T. Graham Brown. “I’m always honored to sing in the ‘Sacred Circle,’ especially during these times of uncertainty. Music heals the soul and that’s what we are all trying to do in one way or another.”

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.
