Both Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame members Vince Gill and Reba McEntire will step into the circle together for the Grand Ole Opry’s 4,933rd consecutive Saturday night broadcast Saturday, July 18 on Circle TVwsmonline.com, and SiriusXMGill was inducted in the Grand Ole Opry on August 10, 1991. McEntire became a member of the Grand Ole Opry on January 17, 1987.

    The two Oklahoma natives met in Nashville in 1988 when Gill sang background vocals on McEntire’s self-titled studio album, Reba. In 1990, the pair recorded their first of many duets, “Oklahoma Swing,” the second single from Gill’s breakthrough album, When I Call Your Name. In 1993, the duo reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart with their hit duet, “The Heart Won’t Lie” and made Country music history with the accompanying cinematic military-themed music video. Gill has said of his friend, “She is arguably one of the greatest singers that will ever draw a breath.”

    “The Grand Ole Opry has always been very special to me and my family,” said McEntire. “It’s part of my history, my heritage and my future, and I’m so excited to get to share the stage with Vince again. Just like Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Brother Oswald, Porter Wagoner and Loretta Lynn, Vince is an Opry legend. I’m proud to be an Opry member and I’ll always be proud to stand on the stage with Vince. Things may be a little different right now, but one thing stays the same – the Opry continues to bring great Country music into the homes of the American people.”

    As the Grand Ole Opry approaches its 95th year in the midst of a global pandemic, Opry members and special guest artists have kept the music playing from the unbroken circle and is reaching some of its largest audiences to date. The Opry has been reaching millions of fans and making new ones each week as it has logged viewers from over 100 countries worldwide who have been tuning in just since the live audience shows were paused in mid-March.

    Though Opry shows with a live Opry House audience are paused, the show will be broadcast live on Circle and Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates. Opry Live 
    on Circle will be hosted by Bobby Bones. The livestream on Circle All Access and YouTube channel will be guest hosted by Natalie Stovall, a member of the country trio Runaway June and host of Circle’s Southern Weekend. Opry announcer Mike Terry will be heard on 650 AM WSM and SiriusXM.


    Capitol Nashville’s Caylee Hammack is offering fans a look into her recently-announced upcoming debut record today, releasing her scorching new song “Redhead” that is “as badass and unique as a fiery head of hair” (Rolling Stone), featuring superstar Reba McEntire available to listen here. Co-written by Hammack with Natalie Hemby and Trent Dabbs, the song details the clothes line, tightrope and dare devil high hopes childhood of the brazen “Redhead” with an assist from fellow flame-haired vocalist Reba McEntire.

    Hammack also premiered a music video for the track today exclusively with CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com, available to watch here. Directed by Justin Clough, the video filled with personality, confidence and persuasion takes viewers back to a little redhead’s childhood, living life in a double-wide trailer as her parents attempt to handle their daughter’s fervor. Hammack’s dynamic performance revels in the nostalgia.

    “This song was inspired by an older cousin of mine with fiery red hair,” shared Hammack. “You don’t hear about redheads very much in songs, so I simply wanted to write one for her and all the redheads in my family. Then, Reba came in the studio and TRANSFORMED this song. She helped me create an anthem for all redheads. Whether you get it naturally or find it in a bottle, this is for the firecrackers!”

    Hammack is all about the truth, the complete, whole unvarnished truth. That truth stains IF IT WASN’T FOR YOU, her major label debut, with equal doses joy, courage and enough detail to break an axle. Available on August 14 Hammack announced the upcoming and anticipated debut release this week, with Hammack co-writing and co-producing every track on the 13-song collection that is available to pre-order now here.

    Currently nominated for ACM “New Female Artist Of The Year” and “Music Event Of The Year,” Caylee Hammack has been noted as an “Artist To Watch” by outlets including The Bobby Bones Show, Rolling Stone and HITS Magazine for her “mix of clever lyrics and haunting melodies” (Music Row). With her breakout Top 30 single “Family Tree” marking the most-added single at Country radio by a female artist in over three years, Hammack has “created a kind of country music that’s larger—and brighter—than real life”(HITS Magazine). The Capitol Nashville recording artist has previously brought her unforgettable live set to opening slots for Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Trisha Yearwood, Brothers Osborne and some of country music’s biggest festivals.

    “Being able to work with Reba McEntire was truly a childhood dream come true. It was a dream that I never even knew I had a chance of accomplishing or reaching, but she was so kind to me and so generous to be able to come in and learn this song and sing it with me. It is such an honor to work with a professional business woman like that, a legend in her career field and a legend in many other ways as well. She is just such an idol of mine and I’m just so grateful she was willing to step in and sing this crazy song with me. I just love her.”

    Audio / Reba McEntire (message and thoughts during COVID-19)


    Reba McEntire (message and thoughts during COVID-19) OC: …I know I sure will. 1:50
    “Our Mama, Jacqueline McEntire, passed away March the 14th of this year, and so my two sisters and brother and I have been really busy here in Oklahoma taking care of her estate and Daddy’s estate, he passed away five years ago. So, we’ve been making sure we get everything separated and divided up amongst us. It’s been healing, sad, hmmm, we’ve found so many fun, wonderful things that we’d never seen before — letters from Daddy to Mama, pictures that I don’t know why she hadn’t shown us but we hadn’t seen ’em before. Mama had put ’em in a box in her closet. So, it’s really neat to see those things and oh, memory lane and so emotional, but gosh, we had a blast. It’s been so wonderful to get to stay with my sister in Chockie, Oklahoma with her and her husband Mark, Susie and Mark. We’ve just had the best time. Some people are in cities with millions, and we’re just here in this little bitty town in Chockie. There might not be more than 14 people here. It’s been a great time of rest, relaxation, meditation, getting to know your family better, my family. I’ve totally enjoyed it. My heart goes out to those peoople who did get sick during the Coronavirus. My heart goes out to the ones who have lost loved ones and family members and friends, but like the song says ‘What If,’ I think it’s really joined us together and made us a tightknit bunch. We’ll survive. We’ll go on, and I think we’ll love deeper, appreciate more and come out stronger at the end. I know I sure will.”

I haven’t really gotten to see my family or anything, because everybody’s so far apart, but I’m hanging in there. Trying to write some music, watching TV, Netflix and stuff, so it’s been fun, getting back to my inner self, powering up the soul, know what I’m saying?”

    Jon Pardi (favorite show on Netflix) OC: …overdubbed. :09
