Carrie Underwood has already been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for five years. At just 30 years old, the Grammy-winning country singer celebrated her anniversary on Friday, June 7, by closing out the first of two performances on the infamous Opry stage with a special segment. After she sang, a special video presentation highlighted the ‘Good Girl’ star’s five years as an Opry member. Then, Underwood had the opportunity to say a few words.
“It’s so hard to believe it’s been five years, but what an amazing five years it has been,” she said (quote via CMIL). “Just watching that video, I was getting a little teary-eyed, thinking about how I felt when all of that was happening. And I still feel that blessed and that honored to be on this stage.”
Congrats to Underwood for five great years as a Grand Ole Opry Member. Here’s to many more!
