Luke Combs Invited to be Next Member of Grand Ole Opry
June 11, 2019 will be a night Luke Combs will never forget.
In the clip below, Craig Morgan, Chris Janson, and John Conlee come out during Combs' set to invite him to become the next member of the Grand Ole Opry.
An emotional Combs is at loss for words and after nearly a full minute of Combs trying to gather his thoughts and emotions, Combs verifies this is not a joke. He then proceeds with his set.
The Opry has recently been on trend for inviting younger members of the country music industry. In the past couple years, artists such as Chris Janson, Kelsea Ballerini, Dustin Lynch, and now Combs have been invited to be members. While their careers are still relatively new, the Opry believes these artists have the character and talent deserving of Opry membership.
A formal date for Combs' Grand Ole Opry induction has yet to be announced.
