Chris Young is all set to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry last night, and he has two huge fans in his corner -- Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.
Trisha - “Sweetest guy ever. He’s just wonderful, and worships this guy [Garth Brooks].”
Garth - “I didn’t know until you told me! Perfect choice.”
Trisha - “I know. Really perfect choice. I think he has his own style, his own thing, but I think he has a real love and appreciation for what came before, and that’s what it’s all about. I’m so happy for him.”
Garth - “Me too. I’m happy for the Opry too because you’re only as good as the people that are on the bus.”
Chris releases his album Losing Sleep on Friday.
It's very rare that an artist is asked to join the Grand Ole Opry, so this is truly a huge honor.
Opry members are required to come back and play several shows a year at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Chris is one of the youngest Opry members.
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.
