WSM 650 AM Nashville will broadcast the Grand Ole Opry Easter celebration, April 11. Trace Adkins, an Opry member since 2003, will host the broadcast.
As a result of COVID-19, the long running show will be broadcast with a limited production team. All the performers including Adkins and Grammy familiar Jason Crabb and T. Graham, will perform without an in-house audience and at recommended social distancing on the Opry stage.
“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,” said 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.”
The show will also be broadcast on the Opry TV affiliates and streaming platforms. Opry fans worldwide will be invited to contribute to the Opry’s #UNBROKEN charitable campaign which raises money for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
