The Circle TV network is kicking off 2021 with some new shows and some returning favorites as well. The network was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Livestreamer for 2020 and has a full slate of programming for the New Year.
Airing now through Feb. 11, Circle is debuting a new series, Opry Rewind, where host Nan Kelley shares stories with artists like Brad Paisley, Montgomery Gentry, Jana Kramer and more about monumental life experiences and iconic Opry performances.
Runaway June’s Natalie Stovall returns to host her show Southern Weekend as she explores and celebrates the best that the South has to offer. Host Nan Kelley and her husband Charlie are also going to be back to reveal the best-kept secrets in America from their motorcycles with their traveling series Authentic America.
“In the second year of the Circle Network, we are thrilled to continue to work with a wide range of talent and deliver authentic, one-of-a-kind content to country music fans’ homes across the nation,” said Drew Reifenberger, Circle Network general manager. “We’re kicking 2021 off with a full slate, and we look forward to rolling out all of the exciting and never-before-seen programming in the weeks to come.”
As previously reported, the network is also adding the 31st Annual IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards to its slate, bringing the biggest night in bluegrass music to their viewers. Airing on Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. ET, the show will celebrate 75 years of bluegrass with performances from the genre’s biggest stars and trailblazers including Del McCoury Band, Balsam Range and Taj Mahal, and guest appearances from Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and more.
Additionally, Circle is joining forces with Phil Vassar for his series Songs from the Cellar as well, with this season featuring guests Matt Ramsey, Lonestar and Tracy Lawrence. Renewed programming also sees the return of My Opry Debut where Chrissy Metz, Dennis Quaid, Niko Moon, Madison Kozack, Sam Williams and more share their experiences leading up to their first-ever performance on the Opry stage.
