BROKEN BOW RECORDS’ DUSTIN LYNCH was surprised by TRACE ADKINS during his GRAND OLE OPRY performance last night (8/21) with an invitation to become the newest member of the OPRY. “Being a member of the GRAND OLE OPRY is at the top of my list of achievements in my career and always will be,” ADKINS said. “We want people to be members of the GRAND OLE OPRY that will have a respect for this institution that it deserves, that it has earned for 92 years. We think that DUSTIN LYNCH is going to carry on in that proud tradition.” Replied LYNCH, “Thank you! I wish you weren’t so big. I want to pick you up, but I couldn’t!”
LYNCH will be officially inducted into the OPRY at his upcoming show at the famed venue on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th.
