The Grand Ole Opry has hosted shows every Saturday night consecutively for the past 90 years, and even social distancing measures aren't going to keep performers off the iconic stage. For the past few weeks, Circle All Access has streamed performances live from the Opry for free on Youtube and a few select other platforms, and this weekend's concert is set to be one of the best yet.

Previous livestreamed events featured guests like Luke Combs, Trace Adkins, and Craig Morgan. This Saturday night, Bobby Bones will host as Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood take to the stage to perform acoustically at the Saturday Night Grand Ole Opry, along with opener Scotty McCreery.

The Opry Livestream events are in support of MusiCares. With the #UNBROKEN campaign, the livestream aims to raise money for MusiCares's COVID-19 Relief Fund, dedicated to benefiting artists and music professionals affected by the crisis. You can text UNBROKEN to 41444 to make a donation during the live event.

Even though country music fans won't be able to watch the show in person, there's no reason to miss out as the free event will be streaming live and may even air on a local channel in your area.
