Chris Janson was surprised during his sold-out Ryman Auditorium concert last night by Keith Urban with an invitation to become an official Grand Ole Opry member. Fellow Opry member Urban then gave the Ryman audience a surprise by performing alongside Janson on the John Michael Montgomery hit “Sold,” a tune the two had collaborated on on the Opry stage last year.
“Over the course of more than 100 appearances since his Opry debut in 2013, Chris has become a favorite of Opry fans and fellow performers alike,” said Opry General Manager Sally Williams. “It’s been amazing to watch him bring audiences to their feet night after night. He is so passionate about the Opry, including its rich history, the camaraderie it builds between generations of fans and artists, and its place in country music’s future. We could not be more thrilled to officially welcome him later this spring.”
“The Opry is where my heart is,” said Janson about the momentous evening and invitation. “I could probably die if I never got to do anything else.”
