Grand Ole Opry Streaming Schedule

As most people are settled into self-isolation for the coming weeks, country music artists are taking their gigs to social platforms and virtual music festivals. We’ve put together a calendar of what shows to tune into in the coming weeks that will keep you connected to the music and artists you love. We’re updating this page daily so that you have the most current live performance information.

Make Music Day

Despite this uncertainty, we wanted to let you know that Make Music Day will still be happening on 21 June across the world. Unlike traditional music festivals, Make Music Day is an open invitation for everyone to make music anywhere and everywhere. We hope to be taking over the streets with music on 21 June, but if we can’t, we invite you to join one of the online Make Music Day initiatives that will take place no matter what.

We added a Private Facebook Discussion Group

We are now ready to launch a private discussion group on facebook.

We invite you to share your thoughts and ideas on how we might best move as performing artists during the course of this Coronavirus pandemic.

You must be affiliated with the arts and derive a portion of your income as a professional in order to join and participate.

We all have downtime. How are you using it to your advantage? Please share.
