Fresh off of the released of his No. 1 country album, Life on the Flip Side, Jimmy Buffett will make his Grand Ole Opry debut on June 27. Jimmy will perform alongside Opry member Brad Paisley, as well as instrument virtuoso Mac McAnally, who is a longtime member of Jimmy’s backing band, The Coral Reef Band.
The June 27th performance will mark the Opry’s 4,930th consecutive Saturday night broadcast.
The one-hour show will air live on 650 AM WSM and Circle Television, as well as stream live on Circle’s Facebook and YouTube.
The Grand Ole Opry has aired without an audience present since March 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a number of stars have helped keep the Opry’s Saturday night shows rolling along, including Kelsea Ballerini, Garth Brooks, Luke Combs, Vince Gill, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood and more.
The Opry has aired every Saturday for more than 90 years.
