Grand Ole Opry will induct Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood will join the “Grand Ole Opry after she was invited Saturday to join the long-running country music show,” the AP reports.

The offer came from Randy Travis Saturday after she performed at the Grand Ole Opry, and the invitation was surprising. “I felt like I just won something amazing all over again. The Opry has meant so much to me growing up, seeing people perform and wanting to do that,” she said.

The AP notes that “artists are invited to join based on their commitment to the show, as measured by the frequency of their guest appearances, and their overall contribution to country music.”

Carrie will be inducted May 10.
