Lorrie Morgan celebrated her 30th anniversary as an Opry member during the CMA Music Festival on Friday, June 6.

Morgan was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry on June 9, 1984. As the daughter of Country Music Hall of Famer George Morgan, she grew up behind the scenes of the hallowed stage, making her onstage debut when she was 13.

“The Opry gave me my start in country music,” Morgan says. “It’s a place we all need to go from time to time to remember why we’re here and what gave us the opportunity to be here.”

To celebrate the 30-year milestone, Morgan played a special set on the Opry’s stage with Jesse Keith Whitley during CMA Fest. Morgan says that throughout her career, the Opry has always felt like home.

“You can’t imagine how it felt the night I became a member of the Opry — the first time I could really call this place home,” she says. “I couldn’t stop shaking or trembling or crying.”
