Nashville Radio: Vince Gill returns To The Opry
Vince Gill is returning to the Grand Ole Opry for the second week in a row, and this time, he's bringing the family with him.
The Tennessean reports Gill will perform on Saturday's Opry with wife Amy Grant and daughters Jenny Gill and Corrina Grant Gill.
The show starts at 7 p.m. CT, and will air live on Nashville radio station WSM 650 AM and the Opry's new Circle TV network. It will also be streamed live on Circle's Facebook and YouTube pages.
To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Opry has continued its Saturday broadcasts from Nashville's Grand Ole Opry House without a live audience.
A new press release confirms the show is continuing with the blessing of Nashville Mayor John Cooper, who issued a Safer-At-Home order for the city earlier this week.
Cooper said Saturday's show is "an important reminder to Nashvillians and millions of people around the world that the music will always continue playing in Music City. With families safely watching and listening from their homes across our city, we are grateful to have some of our city’s greatest ambassadors – Vince Gill, Amy Grant and members of their family stepping on to the stage Saturday night to lift our spirits.”
Meanwhile, Country singer Joe Diffie said Friday that he's tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
"I am under the care of medical professionals and currently receiving treatment," Diffie said in a release. "My family and I are asking for privacy at this time. We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic.”
Diffie, 61, is best known for the '90s country hits "Pickup Man," "John Deere Green," "Third Rock From the Sun" and more. He has been planning to release "I Got This," his first new album in seven years.
Earlier this month, Diffie postponed a concert in Georgia due to coronavirus concerns.
