Invite by Little Big Town
The newest member of the Grand Ole Opry will be...? None other than Kelsea Ballerini who was bestowed with the honorable invitation Tuesday night (March 5).
Ballerini was invited to the institution by Little Big Town during her appearance that evening on the legendary stage, when she joined the group for a rendition of "Girl Crush." At the end, the group's Karen Fairchild surprised the singer by belting out, "Kelsea Ballerini, will you join the Opry?"
Judging from the video posted to the Opry's Instagram Stories, Ballerini was totally surprised—as well as overcome—tearing up on stage. Unsurprisingly: "She said yes!" proudly declared the note on the Opry's Stories.
