Paralyzed Veterans of America has partnered with country music and lifestyle network Circle TV to present a special Memorial Day Weekend of programming including the live telecast of Opry. Airing Saturday night, Opry is an hour-long special that will salute the troops live from the Grand Ole Opry House. Hosted by Bobby Bones, this weekend's show features Craig Morgan, Steven Curtis Chapman and Kellie Pickler.
As in-person events have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, millions of people have been staying connected through unique virtual performances by entertainers across the world.
"Our military heroes deserve honor, even if in-person Memorial Day events aren't an option. We are pleased to join Circle Media to bring this special tribute to living rooms across the country," said David Zurfluh, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. "Many of our members are high-risk and remain on the strictest quarantine. PVA has been working every day to make sure they have the food, vital supplies and medical care they need to survive this crisis. Entertainment like this will lift the spirits of all during a time when we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation."
During Memorial Day weekend, Circle Sessions will feature an episode with Craig Morgan on Saturday, May 23 at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Circle Network. Opry will immediately follow at 8 p.m. EDT. You can also watch the Opry show live on Dish Network Channel 102, and Sling TV. Check your local listings at CirclePlus.com. Viewers can also enjoy on Circle All Access YouTube and Facebook channels.
With underlying health issues, paralyzed veterans, and all people with serious disabilities, are at the greatest risk for deadly repercussions should they contract COVID-19.
