RED Bow Records’ Rachel Farley  stepped onto the famous Grand Ole Opry stage on Friday (March 15) for the first time in her musical career. The evening was quite surreal for Farley, considering it was only six years prior that she visited the Opry as a spectator to see one of her musical idols, Martina McBride, during her very first trip to Nashville.

“The first step in that circle, you always hear people talk about it, but wow,” Farley told America’s Opry Weekend immediately following her performance. “Wow, I mean, you just had to take a deep breath and take it in. It was amazing.”
