Chris Young Inducted Into Grand Ole Opry

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.
