Make your Valentine’s Day just a lil bit country by tuning into the Grand Ole Opry special, which celebrates the famous venue’s 95th birthday. Did anyone say dinner and a concert? You can watch it tonight, February 14, at 9 p.m. EST on NBC. The special is officially called “Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music.”
In normal times, the Nashville venue would be feted and celebrated with a lively in-person concert, but everything is going socially distanced. So if you miss the Opry, now’s a good opportunity to see it again—without having to leave your living room. Just think of it as dinner and a (virtual) show.
Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton are hosting the event together, while country legends Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley, Marty Stuart, Lady A and many others pay homage to the Opry. There will even be some special performances of famous country songs like When You Say Nothing At All,” reimagined by the next generation of stars.
The special will run a total of two hours and also include archive footage from the venue.
But how can you watch it if you don’t have cable? You’ve got two different options:
Hulu + Live offers a 7-day free trial, which you can take advantage of. You can watch many TV stations live, including ABC and NBC. Plus, you can check out Hulu’s whole slate of original content.
This plan isn’t free, but it’s less than a meal at your favorite restaurant. And much cheaper than cable. By selecting the Peacock Premium plan, you can watch NBC live. You’ll also get access to a ton of shows, like fan-favorite The Office, SNL and Downton Abbey.
