This week marked the 4th Anniversary of my induction into the @GrandOleOpry and I will always say I consider that to be the highlight of my professional career. I know I’ve been incredibly lucky to have the opportunities I’ve had and to make my living as a singer. There’s not one day that I’m not grateful for that. I had all but given up the hope of ever becoming an Opry member and so when the great Vince Gill shocked me onstage, letting me know I was invited to be a part of this special group, I was beyond surprised. I could barely sing after that and I near about had my knees give out when he gave me the invitation.
On this coming Tuesday, February 13th, I’ll be having another moment on the Opry stage as The Bellamy Brothers and I debut the LIVE premiere of our song “Forever Ain’t Long Enough.” David wrote this beautiful love song and asked me to record it with them. I was extremely flattered that they’d think of me for that and we’re having a wonderful time with the debut this past week on SiriusXM Radio and the video premiere on People.com. Please go and watch the video now on YouTube!
Here’s an interview I did on the night of the official induction that I thought you might enjoy.
