Ashley McBryde is officially the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. Saturday night marked her 22nd appearance at the Opry and marked her official induction as the 228th member.

Longtime friend and musical inspiration Terri Clark introduced Ashley to the stage and kicked off the evening with an emotionally-charged rendition of her 2019 single, “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.”

During the official induction, Terri spoke of the hard work and talent that drove Ashley to this milestone career moment saying, “The Opry is a family, and my sister, you have earned your spot at the table.”

In her acceptance speech, Ashley reflected on the whirlwind of events of the day, including a surprise backstage visit from Wynonna Judd. As tears filled her eyes, it was clear that her new title as Grand Ole Opry member was a gift she wasn’t taking for granted.

Also, in case you forgot…Garth Brooks was the one who got to surprise Ashley with the initial Opry invitation…
