Scotty McCreery Fulfills His Lifelong Dream as Randy Travis and Josh Turner Welcome Him to the Grand Ole Opry. 2

“Being a member of the Grand Ole Opry is something that I am extremely proud of,” McCreery said. “To carry on the torch of country music and the tradition of the Grand Ole Opry is a responsibility, an honor, and a humbling experience,” said the performer. “I honor and humble myself for this opportunity.”

On Saturday evening (April 20), Scotty McCreery was officially welcomed into the Grand Ole Opry as he became the newest member of the organization. Alongside special guest Randy Travis, who is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the multi-platinum country singer was inducted into the Opry family by his musical hero and fellow Grand Ole Opry member, Josh Turner.

Josh Turner And Randy Travis Inducted Scotty McCreery Into Opry Family

Before Turner and Travis made their way onto the stage for the singer-songwriter’s induction into the Opry, McCreery played two songs from his upcoming new album, Rise And Fall. These songs included “Cab In A Solo,” which is now a Top 5 and climbing single, as well as “Fall of Summer.” In addition, he performed a cover of Randy Travis’s legendary hit song “Three Wooden Crosses,” which many fans regarded as one of the best renditions of the song they had ever heard.

His performance was truly remarkable. McCreery was subsequently presented with his formal Opry Member Award by Josh Turner and Randy Travis, who emerged off the stage to make the presentation.

In an emotional statement, Turner expressed his gratitude to his friend Scotty McCreery by saying, “Tonight is obviously a very special night from my friend.” I am reminded of the Carter Family classic “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” which is a symbolic song that has been sung on the Opry stage more times than we can count. It is a song that symbolizes the passing down of culture, language, and traditions to the next generation. As we stand on or near this circle of wood here on the Opry stage, which was brought from the historic Hyman Auditorium, I am reminded of this song.

Turner went on to say, “I stand here tonight proud of the fact that I bridged the gap between the generation of Randy Travis and Scotty McCreery.” He went on to say, “Only time will tell who will be inspired by Scotty.”

After that, Turner proceeded to share the chorus of the iconic hit song “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes” by George Jones. He then went on to say, “Scotty is not only a great singer and songwriter, but he is also a great man, husband, and now father.” I have a lot of pride for him, and I am even more happy of the fact that he is succeeding artists that came before him. The state of country music is in excellent shape thanks to musicians like him.

You, Scotty As Turner handed McCreery the trophy and microphone to reflect on the great accomplishment, he expressed his gratitude to McCreery by saying, “It is my distinct honor to say congratulations on officially becoming the newest member of the world-famous home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry.”

Before expressing his appreciation for the honor, McCreery took a brief break to appreciate the Grand Ole Opry trophy that he was holding in his hand.

It is my pleasure, Josh. This evening is really incredible, and I wish I had written a speech just now. In fact, I’m wishing I had written a speech right now. In all honesty, it is,” McCreery acknowledges. “If you have listened to any of my interviews over the past thirteen years of doing this, they would ask me, ‘What is your biggest goal in doing any of this?’ and I would always say, ‘One day I want to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry,'” McCreery continued.

“I have been doing this professionally for thirteen years.” The next thing I need to do is go home and begin building a fresh bucket list.
He then yelled out his family, which included his wife Gabi and their kid Avery, who was 18 months old at the time. His family consisted of people who were present in the crowd.

Even though he might not get it right now, I will be able to tell him one day, “Hey buddy, this was your daddy’s dream, and it came true,” and he will be able to understand. McCreery continued while attempting to contain his tears. As a result, I will advise him to go after his dreams, and I will also remind him that one day, your dreams will come true, friend. McCreery made his conclusion by saying, “Thank you so much. Not only do I adore you, but I am also quite happy to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

After that, the native of North Carolina, who was thirty years old at the time, gave his first performance of “Five More Minutes” as an official member of the Opry. “To carry on the torch of country music in the tradition of the Grand Ole Opry is not only an honor, but it is also a responsibility. This is a responsibility that I embrace with humility.” Before McCreery began his performance, he stated, “Therefore, I will do everything in my power to fulfill my obligations and fulfill my contract.”

In the month of December 2023, the legendary country music performer Garth Brooks extended an invitation to McCreery to join the Grand Ole Opry as the newest permanent member.

Additionally, on May 11, only one day following the release of his new album, Rise And Fall, Scotty McCreery will make his comeback to the stage at the Grand Ole Opry. Following the concert that will take place in Studio A within the Opry House, the first four hundred individuals who purchase McCreery’s fifth studio album in the Opry Shop that evening will be granted exclusive access to a special album release event as well as an intimate acoustic session with the North Carolina native.
