Last night at the Grand Ole Opry, Brad Paisley officially made Chris Young the latest member of the Opry family. Before he performed and was given Opry membership on stage, Chris talked about just how important being a member of the Opry is to him:
He said, “You know I was sitting there on my bus the other day with a bunch of my guys going, ‘Man, we have played some of the crappiest bars on the face of the planet together and tomorrow we’re all gonna get dressed up and they’re gonna induct me in as the new member of the Grand Ole Opry. And the only way that I know how to make anybody understand what the level of meaning that is at least to me is ‘Is there anything that I could put over this for relevance and the amount of how big an honor it is to be asked to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry, no.”
The CMAs released promos for next month's show. They feature Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, and Garth Brooks.

Kacey Musgraves hit up Instagram photos of her wedding to singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly. She captioned one, "Saturday, in a sacred place where two rivers meet and join together, I married my best friend… barefoot and surrounded by the deepest kind of magic and love that exists. I've never felt so tranquil and happy."
