ARISTA/NASHVILLE star CARRIE UNDERWOOD was invited to become the newest member of the GRAND OLE OPRY during a sold-out show at the OPRY HOUSE on SATURDAY night (03/15).
Let me think about it,” Underwood playfully smiled before immediately responding “yes!” wiping tears from her eyes. After regaining her composure, UNDERWOOD said to the crowd before launching into her song “Crazy Dreams,” “This is one of the best nights of my life, and it’s certainly something I’ll never forget. And I’m glad each and every one of you were here to share it with me. This has been absolutely amazing!”
The moment happened after CARRIE performed “I Told You So,” from her latest album, “Carnival Ride,” and a Country classic, which was originally recorded by RANDY TRAVIS. RANDY surprised UNDERWOOD on stage, giving her a hug and saying: “That’s a better performance than I will ever do of that song. Thank you.
