One of the biggest honors as someone in the Country Music Industry is to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and last night (8/29) was Chris Young’s night to be offered that honor. After collecting his thoughts, Chris Young got emotional before he sang on the Grand Ole Opry stage after his friend Vince Gill asked him to be the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry:

“I don’t cry at anything man, this is stupid. (cheers) The worst part is this song is really hard to sing and everybody on the radio is going, ‘Man shut up and sing the song.’ Um, oh, dang you got me really good. I love you guys I love everybody here, I love this place so…(cheers).”
