It was great to hear that Carrie Underwood was recently invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. The Baltimore Sun has this:

Carrie Underwood will become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry after she was invited Saturday to join the long-running country music show.

Randy Travis extended the invitation as Underwood finished “I Told You So,” a Travis song that Underwood recorded on her latest album.

Her official induction will be May 10.

This is great. Carrie is a great entertainer, singer an musician. This is the utmost honor in country music.
