Bobby Bones has signed on as host and executive producer of Opry, a new weekly, one-hour Circle Network TV program featuring exclusive highlights from the Grand Ole Opry stage each week.
“Bobby is a terrific entertainer and music enthusiast who has been a friend of the Grand Ole Opry for many years, and a fan for much longer,” said Scott Bailey, president of Opry Entertainment.
“As both an executive producer and host, Bobby will have the opportunity to collaborate with our Grand Ole Opry team and present the Opry in a way that will complement the live radio broadcast by providing an insider’s unique perspective into what goes on behind the curtain of country’s most famous stage.”
“As a kid from Mountain Pine, Arkansas who grew up listening and loving the Opry with my grandma…I’m very honored by this opportunity. The rich history and tradition is second to none, and I’m thankful the Opry has not only trusted me to play music and tell jokes on its famed stage so many times, but to also invite me into this next chapter along with so many great country artists,” Bones said.
Opry joins a growing slate of Circle original programming centered around artists and their music, hobbies, outdoor and offstage adventures, food, family, and friends. Circle also offers entertainment news, documentaries and movies along with licensed programming and archival content.
