The Grand Ole Opry will honor U.S. veterans, current military members and essential workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic with a special Salute the Troops show that features performances by Craig Morgan, Steven Curtis Chapman and Kellie Pickler.
The Opry’s annual pre-Memorial Day Salute the Troops performance will take place on May 23 at 7 p.m. CT. The show will be broadcast live on Circle TV, as well as streamed across Facebook and YouTube.
“The days preceding Memorial Day have for years brought with them our annual Salute The Troops show and unforgettable moments as we honor and say thank you to those who serve our country,” said Dan Rogers, Opry vice president and executive producer. “It’s more important than ever in 2020 that through words and songs we connect fans across the country to recognize the sacrifices of members of the U.S. Military. Additionally, this year’s show will offer the opportunity for fans tuned in around the world to honor the troops of essential workers on the frontline of the battles that have changed our world this year, the war on COVID-19.”
