Watch the Opry’s Saturday Night Show With Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini & Morgan Evans

The Grand Ole Opry tallied 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 one-hour show aired live on 650 AM WSM and was broadcast live on Circle Television, as well as streamed on Circle’s Facebook and YouTube.

“I want to thank the Opry family here for the keeping the lights on, keeping the circle moving,” said Keith. “It means the world to us and to everybody out there watching and listening tonight.”

“I was really interested to see what it was going to feel like to be in here without these pews full,” said Kelsea. “It’s still magic, still sounds good, feels rich and feels special. That just shows how special this place is.”

Keith performed “Coming Home,” “God Whispered Your Name,” “Long Hot Summer,” “Somebody Like You,” “Wasted Time” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Kelsea treated viewers to “A Country Song,” “Hole in the Bottle” and “Homecoming Queen,” while Morgan performed “Kiss Somebody” and “Try a Little Kindness.” For the past 10 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.

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

Trisha Yearwood Tests Positive For COVID – but “On Her Way Out of the Tunnel” Now

A couple of weeks ago Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood announced they were going into quarantine because one of their team members tested positive for COVID.

As fans expected to the see the super star couple resume their public events, news comes that their isolation will last a bit longer as Trisha has now also tested positive. Garth is testing negative as of now.

Speaking on the matter, Garth says “The Queen and I have now tested twice.” In regards to Trisha’s diagnosis, Garth shares, “Officially, she’s diagnosed as ‘on her way out of the tunnel’ now, though, which I’m extremely thankful for.”

The snow and ice storm that the Nashville area experienced last week prevented the couple from getting tested until almost a week after their initial exposure; once they did, they continued to quarantine together.

Garth shared “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together, and anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.” Garth fully admits, “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me.”

Garth says, though he welcomes any prayers and good thoughts anyone wants to send Trisha’s way. “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing. Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” Garth continues. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”
