Carly Pearce is Now a Member of the Grand Ole Opry

Carly Pearce is Now a Member of the Grand Ole Opry

Tuesday night at the Opry House Carly Pearce was welcomed into the Grand Ole Opry family and officially became a member.

The road to Tuesday’s events started several weeks ago when Dolly Parton surprised Carly and extended the official invite.

After being introduced by Opry legend – and Carly’s neighbor – Jeannie Seely, Carly sang her number-one smash hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” (Carly handled solo duties on the track as her duet partner Lee Brice was not in attendance)

Knowing that Trisha Yearwood was going to be the one welcoming her to the Opry, Carly then sang “How Do I Live” – which Trisha came out to help with.

Then the big moment arrived…

Congrats to Carly Pearce on becoming the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry – Tuesday night she wasn’t the next girl – she was the “it” girl…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
