Congratulations are in order for Chris Young, who was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry tonight (August 29th).
From the photo the Opry posted of Chris ecstatically jumping into Vince Gill‘s arms, it seems the invitation was well-received.
“Tonight was so unreal! Growing up listening to the Opry, I never imagined that I would be invited to be a member!” Chris later posted on social media.
The “Losing Sleep” singer is set to release his album of the same name on October 20th.
Membership in the Opry is considered one of the greatest honors in country music. Watch the video of Chris’s reaction here:
