Carly Pearce is Now a Member of the Grand Ole Opry

Tuesday night at the Opry House Carly Pearce was welcomed into the Grand Ole Opry family and officially became a member.

The road to Tuesday’s events started several weeks ago when Dolly Parton surprised Carly and extended the official invite.

After being introduced by Opry legend – and Carly’s neighbor – Jeannie Seely, Carly sang her number-one smash hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” (Carly handled solo duties on the track as her duet partner Lee Brice was not in attendance)

Knowing that Trisha Yearwood was going to be the one welcoming her to the Opry, Carly then sang “How Do I Live” – which Trisha came out to help with.

Then the big moment arrived…

Congrats to Carly Pearce on becoming the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry – Tuesday night she wasn’t the next girl – she was the “it” girl…
