NASHVILLE – As Music City follows the guidance of government and health officials, attractions have closed their doors to visitors and shifted to offering online experiences. The Grand Ole Opry is available for live streaming on Saturday evening, and two Nashville documentaries are online for viewing. Music City favorites can still be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home.
For those missing the sound of Music City, Nashville’s newest documentary, It All Begins With a Song: The Story of the Nashville Songwriter, is now available for purchase and streaming on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and more. The film tells the story of the Nashville Songwriter, from heartbreak to triumph and all the steps in between. Enjoy an inside look into Music Row, and the daily life of a songwriter.

On March 16, the Grand Ole Opry paused all shows with a live audience, but vowed to continue its nearly 95-year radio broadcast history with acoustic performances from some Opry favorites and minimal crew. Almost half a million fans streamed or listened to the show, helping the Opry continue its streak as the world’s longest running radio show. That will continue this Saturday, March 21, when Circle, Opry’s television network, will again bring the Opry show to country music fans in their own homes. Check your local listings, Facebook, and YouTube for more information and help keep the tradition alive by tuning in.
The music never stops in Nashville, and that is still the case. Many Nashville artists are sharing their talents with the world via social media and live streaming apps. Tune in to an upcoming show, or catch one your might have missed. Hear the music: www.visitmusiccity.com/upcomingconcerts
