Carrie Underwood Commemorates 15th Anniversary As An Opry Member
Carrie Underwood celebrated her 15th year as a Grand Ole Opry member this past weekend with a two-show performance. Backstage, the Opry presented her with a commemorative print and a specially-designed cake by IveyCake.
Underwood made her Opry debut on June 10, 2005, just two weeks after winning American Idol. Her love for the Opry started as a child as she grew up watching and listening to the show, dreaming of one day performing there and even becoming a member herself. The award-winning artist was officially inducted on May 10, 2008 by fellow Oklahoman, Opry member Garth Brooks.
Additionally, Underwood completed her 43-city U.S. arena “Denim & Rhinestones Tour,” and will continue her “Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency” in June. She also recently announced her exclusive year-round SiriusXM Channel, Carrie’s Country, which will also launch in June.
Underwood plans to return to the Grand Ole Opry stage for a special two-show Tuesday night on June 6 to “unofficially” kick off the milestone 50th CMA Fest week. The star-studded evening will also feature performances by The Oak Ridge Boys, Bill Anderson, Josh Turner and Lainey Wilson.
