Three Things We’re Excited to Watch on Circle This Month
Circle, a new country music and lifestyle television network, continues to roll out new shows after its January 1 launch, including a live-recorded series that brings the Grand Ole Opry into living rooms across the country. Here’s what we’re watching this month.
Opry | Wednesdays 9 p.m. EST
We’re ready for our closeup! The Grand Ole Opry is returning to television every Wednesday night with radio personality Bobby Bones playing host. When the show premieres on February 26, each hour-long episode will include performances, backstage interviews, and behind-the-scenes segments. Longtime Opry fans will remember when “the show that made country music famous” aired on TV in previous decades, and now Opry promises to peel back the big red curtain in a whole new way.
Coffee, Country & Cody | Weekdays 8-11 a.m. EST
Country Music Disc Jockey Hall of Famer Bill Cody is coffee in human form — he has to be since he’s been waking up at 3:30 a.m. to host his show on WSM Radio for the past 26 years. With the launch of Circle, not only can you listen to Cody, but you can watch him, too. When rolling out of bed is hard to do, Cody and co-hosts Charlie Mattos and Jo Smith will perk you right up with their on-air banter.
My Opry Debut | Wednesdays 8:30 p.m. EST
Making your debut on the Grand Ole Opry is one of the biggest highlights of any country artist’s career. Now viewers at home get to follow emerging stars on their journey to the Opry’s storied circle of wood that sits centerstage at the Opry, well-worn by the legends who’ve walked on it before them. Don’t miss the awe-inspiring and emotional debuts of Ashley McBryde, Yola, and Joshua Hedley this season.
