‘Today marks my Grand Ole Opry Anniversary.

On this day, Friday 7 February 2020, I was officially welcomed into the Opry family.

When I was just a kid, our family would sit and listen to the Opry on the radio, and I was mesmerized by the music.

I never dreamed I would ever stand on that stage, much less be a real Opry member.

It’s impossible to describe the honour I felt to be inducted.

I’ll always be grateful to the Grand Ole Opry, and grateful to you, my fans, who have allowed me to have this career for 60 years’
