It’s one of Nashville’s biggest honors and Kelsea Ballerini just received it. The singer is now a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Little Big Town surprised Kelsea with the invitation onstage at the Opry. Kelsea was visibly shocked and emotional but, of course, answered a big yes.

The Opry Instagram posted this right after, “BREAKING: @kelseaballerini has just been invited to become the newest member of the Grand Ole #Opry by @littlebigtown!”
