After the success of their first live-streaming concert, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are back for another night of live country music, only this time they won't be singing in their home studio—they'll be performing from the legendary Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN. And it's happening this Saturday, May 2 at 8 p.m. EST.

For those unfamiliar with the Grand Ole Opry, the performance space is considered one of the most iconic country music halls in America. It even has the nickname “Country's Most Famous Stage” and is home of the longest-running radio broadcast in U.S. history with performances almost every Saturday night since it was founded in 1925. (Seriously, this weekend will mark the venue's 4,922nd consecutive Saturday-night performance.) While Brooks and Yearwood have both performed there multiple times, this particular show is sure to be a unique experience as the hall will be kept totally empty.

The concert will be streamed on Facebook Live (hopefully without the same technical difficulties encountered during the couple's March concert) and Brooks has promised a night full of country music's greatest hits. “I’m gonna do some of the greatest country music on the planet. I don’t even know if I’m gonna do any of mine!” Brooks joked recently on an episode of his InsideStudioG Facebook show. We'll have to wait to see what the actual set list entails, but Brooks did name drop such superstars as George Jones, Randy Travis, George Strait and Merle Haggard, just to list a few. Of course, he and Yearwood will have to play some of their own chart toppers (fingers crossed for a rendition of Friends in Low Places or Wrong Side of Memphis).

Brooks and Yearwood will also be signing on early, at 7:30 p.m. EST to be exact, to check in with fans, answer questions and get everyone excited for what is sure to be an unforgettable night of country jams.
