Carrie Underwood Celebrates Five Years as an Opry Member
Carrie Underwood had a busy weekend. In addition to performing for the CMA Music Fest, the 30-year-old also celebrated the five year anniversary of her induction into the Grand Ole Opry on Friday (June 7) with a special video presentation commemorating some of the highlights of her many Opry shows.
"It's so hard to believe it's been five years, but what an amazing five years it has been," she says (quote via Taste of Country). "Just watching that video, I was getting a little teary-eyed, thinking about how I felt when all of that was happening. And I still feel that blessed and that honored to be on this stage."
Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher presented the songstress with a special print in honor of the momentous occasion.
"You have far surpassed the high expectations we had when we brought you into the family, and we know it is going to continue into the future," he shared. "You are not only so good for country music, you are so good for the Grand Ole Opry, and you are so good for America. We appreciate all that you do."
