Becoming an Opry member is considered one of the highest honors for an artist in country music. “We are so truly grateful to officially be a part of this amazing family,” Lady A said in a post on Instagram.

Fans will get to see the special moment on the Grand Ole Opry 95th Anniversary special, February 14th on NBC, hosted by  Blake Shelton & Brad Paisley.
