Throughout the two-day CMA Awards lead up, Circle will air special Opry Live performances featuring Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley; Reba McEntire and Vince Gill; Darius Rucker and Clint Black; and Brothers Osbourne, Wendy Moten, and Ricky Skaggs.

To bring fans even closer to their favorite artists, GEICO and Circle have partnered to launch the virtual GEICO Green Room for the opportunity to interact with the country stars themselves, view exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews and content, and also enter for the chance to win prizes like a trip to the 2021 CMA Awards.
