Carly Pearce is the Newest Member of the Grand Ole Opry {WATCH}

Carly Pearce is the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry!

Trisha Yearwood had the honor of officially welcoming Pearce to the Opry family.

Trisha told the rising star, “This is a very special place, and when you are invited it’s an invitation to the family. So, with much pride and joy, Carly you are now an official member of the Grand Ole Opry.”

Carly told the audience, “What makes this family something special to be a part of is that you can have hit records and sell out shows, but all of that can fade and this is something I will have forever. It’s a stage to sing on, a circle to stand in and a forever family. This is super special to me.”

“All I ever wanted to do was to sing country music,” she continued. “This isn’t another accolade or feather in my cap but a promise that I will do my due diligence to make sure the circle is never broken.”
