Chris Young Receives Grand Ole Opry Invitation

posted by Dustin Stout - 

The Grand Ole Opry is about to welcome its youngest member.

After 78 performances on the historic stage, Chris Young received his invitation to join the Opry as an official member Tuesday night (8/29) in Nashville.

Vince Gill extended the invitation and Chris was so excited he kissed the Opry’s hallowed circle and then lifted Vince off the floor in a bear hug.

Before the invitation, the country star was awarded his Platinum certification for his album Neon and a Gold certifcation for the single “Sober Saturday Night.”

Chris is set to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on October 17.
