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.

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! 

Congratulations, @chrisyoungmusic on being the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry! 🏆
