Chris Young Joins the Opry

Chris Young officially became a member of the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday, October 17th in Nashville. Brad Paisley did the honors, welcoming him into the Opry family. Before he performed and was given Opry membership on stage, Chris talked about just how important being a member of the Opry is to him:

“You know I was sitting there on my bus the other day with a bunch of my guys going, ‘Man, we have played some of the crappiest bars on the face of the planet together and tomorrow we’re all gonna get dressed up and they’re gonna induct me in as the new member of the Grand Ole Opry. And the only way that I know how to make anybody understand what the level of meaning that is at least to me is ‘Is there anything that I could put over this for relevance and the amount of how big an honor it is to be asked to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry?’ No.”

Chris returns to the road on Thursday, October 19th with a show in Columbus, OH on tour with Jason Aldean.
