Carrie Underwood Celebrates her 100th Opry Performance

Over the weekend, Carrie Underwood celebrated her 100th performance on the Grand Ole Opry with four sold-out shows.  

Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame member Connie Smith introduced Underwood on Saturday’s first show and presented her with a commemorative print and a rose bouquet in celebration of her 100 Opry appearances. Backstage, Carrie marked the 100-show milestone with a specially-decorated cake from Nashville’s IveyCake and 100 pink roses in her dressing room, a surprise gift from the Opry.

Carrie made her Opry debut on June 10th, 2005, less than two weeks after winning American Idol. She went on to become an official Opry member in 2008.
