Vince Gill and Amy Grant to perform with daughters hosted by Bobby Bones
As part of the “Stay in & SLING” initiative, Sling TV will stream Grand Ole Opry’s 4,917th consecutive Saturday night (March 28th) concert with music legends Vince Gill and Amy Grant. The event is part of the Sling TV free experience, with no paid Sling TV account required. The duo will take the stage with their daughters Jenny Gill and Corrina Grant Gill for an intimate live performance hosted by popular TV and radio personality Bobby Bones, beginning at 8 pm ET.
“The Grand Ole Opry has blessed us with best in country music every week for nearly a century,” states Warren Schlichting, group president of Sling TV. “We are proud to present this legendary stage to the nation as part of our free experience. Customer or not, everyone’s welcome to join.”
“I can’t count the number of times I have walked through our house on the way to the coffee pot, hearing Vince or one of the kids working on a song and wishing the whole world was surrounded by music the way I have been,” shares Amy Grant. “Music is healing and soul-filling and connects us to each other. I’m honored and thrilled that our family has been asked to take the Opry stage on Saturday night.”
Before the live concert, country music fans can catch an encore tribute to Kenny Rogers performed by Brad Paisley, Vince Gill and Marty Stuart at 7 pm ET.
