The Grand Ole Opry tallied its 4,940th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Sept. 5 with a showcase featuring a pair of country music’s biggest stars: Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.
In addition to performing their own solo tunes, the longtime CMA Awards co-hosts treated viewers to a number of duets, including “Remind Me,” “Whiskey Lullaby,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” and “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man,” which you can watch below.
Penned by Becki Bluefield and Jim Owen, “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi” was a No. 1 hit for Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty in 1973.
The Grand Ole Opry has aired without an audience present since March 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a number of stars have helped keep the Opry’s Saturday night shows rolling along, including Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Clint Black, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Luke Combs, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood and more.
