The Grand Ole Opry will tally its 4,941st consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Sept. 12 with a showcase featuring Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Riley Green and Mark Wills.
Tenille and Riley recently earned ACM Awards for New Female Vocalist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, respectively. Ashley is nominated for three awards at the upcoming CMA Awards, while Mark was inducted into the Opry in January 2019.
