LAST NIGHT (10/16), CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist DARIUS RUCKER was inducted into the GRAND OLE OPRY.
The induction was presented by VINCE GILL, who said, “I don’t think there’s a more beloved guy in our music than you. Before you even open your mouth and sing a song you’ve written, everybody is really crazy about you. You will find this place right here to be one of the greatest homes you’ll ever have. Thanks for wanting to be a Country music singer!”
“Thank you very much. .I was sitting in here at rehearsals today, and there was nobody in here, and I looked up in the stands. I thought to myself, ‘Somewhere in those stands right now my mom is looking at me.’ And it just blew me away to be here today. This means more to me than I could ever say to you,” said RUCKER.
Afterwards, RUCKER and the audience watched a clip on the OPRY’S barn screen of OPRY member and fellow CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN, sending his "Ccongratulations" from LAS VEGAS.
