Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood & More Added To 5,000th Grand Ole Opry Broadcast

The Grand Ole Opry has announced that Garth Brooks, Dustin Lynch, Darius Rucker and Trisha Yearwood will join the star-studded lineup for its historic 5,000th Saturday night broadcast on October 30.

Previously announced performers include Bill Anderson, Terri Clark, Vince Gill, Chris Janson, Jeannie Seely, Connie Smith, The Gatlin Brothers and Chris Young.

The Opry’s 5,000th Saturday night broadcast milestone includes a month of celebrations, a limited-time exhibit and a night of unforgettable performances on the legendary Opry stage. The first of the night’s two ticketed shows will be available to stream live on Circle Network, including its Circle All Access Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channel.

The world’s longest-running radio show, the Grand Ole Opry expanded to television and eventually digital streaming platforms. The Opry has been on the airwaves longer than any other broadcast program of any medium anywhere in the world and has continued to produce original shows for 5,000 Saturday nights through the Great Depression, World War II, two Nashville floods and, most recently, a global pandemic.
