Josh Turner Accepts Opry Invitation
October 1, 2007 at 6:35 AM (PT)
MCA recording artist JOSH TURNER received an offer he couldn't refuse on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29th when Country legend ROY CLARK asked him to become a member of the GRAND OLE OPRY. TURNER was there to present CLARK with a plaque commemorating his 20 years of service to the OPRY, but was shocked to find out there was an envelope taped to the back of the plaque with his name on it.
CLARK read the letter aloud, asking TURNER if he would like to become a formal member of the historic institution and TURNER quickly accepted. The formal induction ceremony will take place on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27th, with fellow OPRY member and label mate VINCE GILL doing the honors.
