I remember growing up near Nashville listening to and watching the Opry. Since I began my career in music, playing the @opry has always been a highlight. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I would get to join this family. Dreams come true. I’m excited to call this place Home for the rest of my life.
It's official, Chris Young is the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry!
Brad Paisley was on hand to officially induct Chris into the Opry family and said "Chris is one of those people who will make the most of this. He is a great human being," just minutes before the big moment!
Overwhelmed with emotion and searching for words, Chris said that the only two words he could think to say were "thank you" after Brad introduced him in as the newest member of the Opry.
Check out Brad's full speech and Chris' emotional response below:
And just to prove to himself that the entire experience wasn't a dream, Chris shared this hilarious Instagram post of he and his award captioned in the words of Beyonce, "#WokeUpLikeThis."
