Carrie Underwood celebrated five years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry with a performance on June 7. The Grand Ole Opry’s President and General Manager Pete Fisher gave Underwood a print commemorating the occasion.
After a video presentation highlighting Underwood’s Opry performances ran for the audience, the singer shared, “It’s so hard to believe it’s been five years, but what an amazing five years it has been. 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.”
“You have far surpassed our high expectations when we brought you into the family and we know it’s going to continue into the future. You are not only so good for country music, you are so good for the Grand Ole Opry…You are the All-American Girl, aren’t you?” said Fisher.
