Kelsea Ballerini officially became the newest (and youngest) member of the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday night!
She wrote in a heartfelt post on Instagram
last night I had the immeasurable honor of being inducted into the @opry as the newest, youngest member of the family. Opry, thank you for believing in me like you do. For embracing and supporting my kind of country music. For knowing I’ll always show up for you. And for always showing up for me. And @carrieunderwood, I really wouldn’t know what it looks like to be a woman in country music without you. Thanks for paving the way and being there for me last night. I’m a forever fan.
It’s the kind of night that is really hard to put into words, but my heart is so full. ❤️
