Chris Janson will become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. The singer played his first headlining show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium last night (Monday, February 5th), and it was before this sold-out crowd that Keith Urban surprised Chris with the special invitation. He will be inducted into the Opry later this year.
After the shock of the invitation wore off Chris told the crowd, “The Opry is where my heart is. I could probably die if I never got to do anything else.”
Chris has performed on the stage of the Opry more than 100 times.
